Jumbo shot by poachers is treated

B’luru: The badly injured 50-year-old male elephant Siddha in suburban Manchanabele dam has been treated. The plight of the pachyderm found light on social media, prompting animal lovers to launch a ‘Save Sidda’ campaign to alert tardy forest officials. Veterinarians criticised the officials of gross neglect, since the animal was suffering in the backwaters for over 45 days. He was shot at by poachers, injuring him. Forest veterinarian Arun Zakaria from Kerala and Kushal Kumar Sharma from Assam tranquilised the jumbo, removed the pus from its leg and stomach and sutured him up. After he recovers under the watch of officials and animal welfare department, he will be released into the Savandurga forest.
