Guwahati/IBNS: The forest officials have rescued six wild elephants trapped in a muddy pond in Assam’s Goalpara district with the help of locals.

According to the reports, six wild elephants including a calf got stuck in a muddy pond near Lakhipur area in Goalpara district on Friday evening.

According to the reports, a herd of elephants came down to the area from nearby hills from Meghalaya side in search of food and six among the herd got stuck in the pond.

When some local villagers noticed the incident they immediately informed local forest officials and police.

At least 10 wild elephants had gone down to the pond to take bath and out of them four elephants had managed to come out, but six elephants got trapped. Later, we have used two JCBs to rescue the six elephants,” a forest official of Goalpara district said.
