Most of us can look at two meal plates and easily tell which one has more food on it. But if someone turns out the lights, we’re out of luck. Not so for Asian elephants.

Locals found an elephant fallen into an unprotected well made by farmers. It waddled in the pool of mud while trying to climb up to the surface. But the well was deep and it couldn’t come out by itself. Lots of onlookers were there just to help the elephant get out but all tries were in vain. Even though the elephant was seen very tired, it kept munching on the food it was given to help its hunger.

Elephants have lived peaceful lives around Kilimanjaro for centuries but the pathways they have used are disappearing as land is being farmed and farmers safeguard their land against the travelling herds.

Some lucky ones are treated by bush vets but other injuries go unnoticed and can lead to death.

Minneria National park is a beautiful area situated in the north central province in the island of Sri Lanka. It was declared as a wildlife sanctuary in 1938 to protect the human-made tank and the surrounding area full of wildlife. The Sinhalese people under the rule of King Mahasen built the reservoir here in the third century AD.

The location is always full of tourists both from the country and around the world due to its beautiful natural sceneries and these lovely giants that roam the island.
