Trincomalee (Sri Lanka), July 25 (ANI): Two wild elephants washed out to sea were saved from drowning by the Sri Lankan Navy. A joint rescue operation by the country’s navy and wildlife officials took about five hours, with the pair being towed safely back to shore using long ropes tied around their bodies. A team of naval divers were deployed for the rescue as well as three more Fast Attack Craft after the mammals were initially spotted out at sea by an Inshore Patrol Craft on a routine sea patrol. Two weeks ago, the Sri Lankan navy rescued another elephant in a similar position about eight nautical miles off the country’s northeast.
