Elephant Is Swept All The Way Out To Sea, Navy Has No Choice But To Intervene

Strong currents dragged an elephant about 10 miles out to sea off the coast of Sri Lanka.

Elephants are known to be good swimmers, using their trunks as natural snorkels. But for this particular elephant off the Sri Lanka coast, a rescue was deemed necessary. They say strong currents dragged it about 10 miles out to sea.

“They can’t keep swimming for long because they burn a lot of energy. And the salt water isn’t good for their skin, so in this case, the situation probably warranted human intervention.”

What an unbelievably amazing effort! You don’t see rescues like this every day.
