The story of this elephant brings back the belief in humanity.
Even elephants understand that people are different. These smartest animals are still illegally hunted in Africa.
This elephant was on the verge of death from a poacher’s shot. Fortunately, the bullet hit him in the forehead and hit the thick bone.
Everything would be fine, but an infection appeared in the wound. The elephant could have died from septic shock.
The national park staff did not immediately understand why he purposefully walked towards them. Everyone knows cases when angry elephants erase everything in their path.
But when the wounded animal approached, the hunters realized that he was asking for help.
Doctors and rescuers arrived at the scene. In order for the veterinarians to be able to examine him, the animal was immobilized by an injection of an ampoule with a sedative.
The most difficult thing was to remove the bullet, it was tightly attached to the skull. However, it was safely removed, the wound was cleaned, treated with antibiotics and sewn up. Doctors waited until the patient wakes up and regains consciousness after anesthesia.
The rescued elephant is now unique to those who can take care of its welfare.
They are determined to make sure that he no longer suffers from poachers.
