Forest officials rescue injured elephant in West Bengal
Jalpaiguri, Jan 04 (ANI): The forest department in West Bengal rescued an injured elephant from mud pool. The veterinary surgeon started the treatment for elephant’s good health and said he is responding well despite injury on the left leg. The jumbo had got stuck in a pool of mud in a forest area in Jalpaiguri district of West Bengal on Friday morning. A non-governmental organisation (NGO) assisted the forest department in the rescue operation. Earlier people tried to pull the elephant out but in vain, after which, a crane and two domestic elephants were brought in. Villagers are increasingly encroaching on forest land, forcing the elephants to increasingly barge into villages, killing dozens of people each year, often trampling them to death.
