Moving elephants

Moved to safety: The wild bull elephant (with tusks) sedated and standing on top of a truck brought in by Perhilitan’s Elephant Management Unit out of the jungle. He was led by tame elephants handled by Perhilitan rangers, who used the tame elephants to make sure that the bull did not become stressed during the capture.

THE villagers of Kampung Durian Bador in Kuala Berang, Terengganu watched as the huge elephant that had been raiding their orchards for over a year lay sedated in a jungle swamp just 20m away.

Now chained to a tree, the wild bull was awake as he lay in chest-deep mud.
