An elephant was rescued from an agricultural well at the Malai Mahadeshwara Wildlife Sanctuary in Karnataka. According to Indian Forest Service officer Yedukondalu V, the male elephant fell into the agricultural well in Hoogyam and was rescued with the help of villagers, police, media, and forest frontline staff. Yedukondalu shared the video from his Twitter handle on April 23 thanking everyone present at the scene for cooperation.
In the video, the elephant can be seen stuck inside the water well before a crane comes and takes out the concrete steps because of which the giant animal was unable to climb up. After the concrete steps were removed by the crane operator, the elephant comfortably climbed up as people cheered in the background. The video is going viral on the micro-blogging platform and has garnered more than 4,100 views since it was shared yesterday afternoon. Netizens are lauding the forest officials and congratulating the Karnataka Forest Department for its great work in saving the elephant.
