Elephant stuck in muddy pool at Amsang reserve forest finally pulled out to safety

May 27 (NL Web Desk): The elephant stranded in a water body at Amsang reserve forest for nine days was pulled out to safety after its health improved in the past couple of days. The elephant, a 10-year-old male, had gone into the pool but could not climb back to the shore. The pachyderm was pulled out of the pool by forest officers with the help of two other elephants.
Forest officials had at first given little importance to the incident even after the matter was reported by the local people. And it was only after the incident was reported by the media and after Forest Minister Pramila Rani Brahma visited the place that officials took up measures to lift the elephant out of the water body.
Domesticated elephants were used and it was with the help of two elephants that the pachyderm stranded in the pool was pulled out of the water body after its health normalised since the past couple of days.
The elephant, it may be mentioned, had ventured out in search of food and accidentally fell into the water body.
