Navy Rescues Elephant Drowning 8km (5miles) From Shore

Sri Lankan naval personnel carried out a 12-hour rescue operation of an elephant found awash at sea, 8km (5miles) from the northeast coast of Colombo, on Wednesday. A Fast Attack warship carrying out a routine patrol spotted the elephant in distress, which had been dragged out to sea by a strong current, they called for backup. Three more navel ships were deployed during the rescue effort which slowly and gently along with divers, guided the large animal to the shore using ropes. Once back on land, the team handed the exhausted elephant over to the Department of Wildlife, which had provided advise during the rescue operation….Ed
