Three officers attached to the Wildlife Department including a veterinary surgeon were rescued after their boat capsized following an elephant attack in Kala Wewa today.

The officers, on-boat, had tried to approach the elephant that was in the water to give injections as the elephant was earlier injured when it was hit by a train several days ago.

After being injected, the elephant has acted in an aggressive manner and damaged the boat in which the wildlife officers were in. However, fishermen in the vicinity have rescued all four wildlife officers, unharmed.

According to the officers, an early attempt by another group of wildlife officers to treat the same elephant has ended up in a similar way. (Kushan Jayawardana)
