Elephant lifted to safety after falling down 50-foot well 1

Dumbo was nearly done-for after falling down a well in India.

Crews in the village of Panchapalli raced to save an elephant on Thursday after being chased by dogs and tumbling into a reservoir 50 feet below ground. It took rescuers some 16 hours to devise and enact a plan to haul the poor pachyderm out of the hole with a heavy-duty crane.

A team of wildlife veterinarians from the southern state of Tamil Nadu were on site to direct the effort, as well as more than 50 local officials from the forest department, fire department and local police, SWNS reported.

Excavators were on site to dig out debris, making room for the operation. First, doctors had to be lowered into the well to administer tranquilizers to the anxious animal.

Once subdued, they strapped the elephant into several harnesses and lifted its approximately 4 tons of weight back onto high ground.

Leaves from a nearby coconut tree were dropped into the well for the elephant to eat during the harrowing 16-hour rescue.

Following a health exam, the elephant will be released into the Hosur Forest, in the north of Tamil Nadu.

Their rescue method was just one of several used to save elephants stuck in similar situations. An elephant that had fallen into a 25-foot well in the state of Jharkhand, India was helped to safety by a team of workers who used motorized pumps to fill the pit with water, which allowed the animal to float to the top and return to the forest uninjured.
