African Elephant Receives Treatment by Rescuers After Taking Spear to the Back
"Incidences such as these this are tragically becoming more and more common," said honorary game warden Shazaad Kasmani.
An African elephant was sedated by rescuers for treatment after they noticed the poor animal had suffered a spear injury.
Kenya Wildlife Service Honorary Game Warden Shazaad Kasmani, 38, was in a nature preserve with a team when they noticed the elephant had sustained a wound on its back.
Kasmani said the elephant must have been wounded by humans wielding spears.
“Incidences such as these this are tragically becoming more and more common,” he said in an interview with Caters News.
But rescuers got right to work, sedating the elephant for urgent treatment.
Kasmani captured his team's efforts on video.
“This elephant in particular received medical attention in good time, meaning it will be able to make a good recovery,” he said.
The elephant was marked with a colored spray so rescuers can monitor its progress.
