Elephant rescued by navy in ocean off Sri Lankan coast


Navy said the elephant dragged away by current was initially noticed by a Fast Attack Craft on routine patrol in the aforesaid sea area.

As big as Bali, the loss of the Larsen C ice shelf will require maps to be redrawn and could ultimately cause sea levels to rise.

The fishermen were engaged in bottom trawling in Sri Lankan territorial waters northwest of Delft Island, the Navy said.

Footage of the incident shows a diver climbing onto the elephant's back and attaching ropes so it can be pulled towards a nearby boat.

Amazingly, this is far from the first such elephant rescue.

Divers were dispatched to rescue the elephant in what was reportedly a 12-hour process. On 9 July, three Indian fishermen from Tamil Nadu were detained by the Sri Lankan Navy.

Walakuluge speculated that the animal may have swept mid-sea while crossing the Kokkilai lagoon, a large stretch of water that lies between two areas of jungle.

A different mission from the usual yesterday had the Sri Lankan Navy, called to save a drowning elephant.

Krishnan did add that the navy's involvement was likely important because elephants can't swim for too long due to the substantial amount of energy burned through swimming.
