Villagers and wildlife officers in Sri Lanka worked together to help an elephant that had become trapped in a canal for more than 10 hours.
The elephant was rescued from Maduru Oya's Z.D main canal near Medagama on Monday, after wandering out from the nearby Aluthwewa forest reserve.
The animal fell into the main canal from the Verarana area in Aralaganwila, but was washed around 10km downstream before being hauled out.
The elephant, estimated to be around 40 years old, was then pushed into the nearby forest.
