Elephant Caught In Snare Rescued

June 4, 2018
When a wild African elephant was caught in a poacher's snare, there was no time to waste, he had to be operated on before the damage on his leg became too bad. A helicopter took of to hit the animal with a tranquilizing dart and a team on the grand came to action. The metal wire was cut off and the wound was cleaned, they had to act quickly before the animal woke up. The wound was quite deep, but elephants have a thick skin and are very strong, the animal will likely survive.
