Heroes Rescue Elephant With A Broken Leg Who Was Trapped In A River


When locals heard an unusual cry coming from a nearby river, they had no idea what could be making so much noise, but could tell that the creature was clearly in pain and suffering.

When the locals reached the Manchanabele Dam in southern India, they discovered a young, male elephant named Sidda who was clearly injured and sick. A few weeks earlier, the elephant had fallen into a ditch in a nearby forest and fractured his leg. To take some pressure off the injured limb, he waded into the water, however, became stuck and was too weak to climb out.

The locals attempted to treat Sidda from the water, but eventually called in experts to pull the elephant out from the water, which took four long hours. Yet despite being pulled to safety, the elephant struggled to stay on his feet and his condition started to deteriorate even further once curious people from the area started flocking to his side to pray for him and bring food.

To calm his anxiety, 50 military officers came to the site to make sure Sidda, who is in ‘grave’ condition, is protected while he tries to heal and have helped build a crane to lift him so doctors can keep him lifted, which will allow them to provide better treatment.

“The Wildlife SOS team is monitoring Sidda round the clock and doing all we can to help this poor elephant by providing him treatment and care,” said Geeta Seshamani, co-founder of Wildlife SOS. “We hope and pray for his recovery. We have already invested substantial resources in providing treatment including sending a veterinarian with a portable digital x-ray machine by plane.”
