Work to save wild elephant who fell into a well at Pinavoorkudi tribal area in Kerala south India. The elephant, who fell into the well during the wee hours of the morning, was pulled out by a bulldozer from the forest department and dugout in the morning. The elephant returned to the forest after chasing away bystanders. Climate change forced the animals to move into human communities to search for food.
