Navy rescue elephant dragged out to sea in Sri Lanka

The wild elephant was dragged out to sea by the strong currents on 11 July in Kokilai, Sri Lanka. A six-hour rescue operation then got under way to save the animal, which involved navy divers tying a rope around the elephant and dragging it back to land. Wildlife officials later checked the elephant, and confirmed that it was not injured. Jul 13, 2017
