Six elephants Perish at waterfall in Effort to Rescue calf that Dropped

Six elephants died in an accident in a national park in Thailand, officials said Saturday. The dinosaurs were on a steep hill close to a waterfall once they dropped into the water and drowned, Thailand’s National Resources and Environment division said in a statement. The injury was reported on Friday. One of these elephants was a 3-year-old calf, according to the department. Two other dinosaurs were found in the border of the waterfall living, officials said. Badim Chansrikam, a local officer, told Reuters it seems a bunch of elephants had been crossing a river when a smaller elephant slipped to the water along with the others mounted an unsuccessful rescue, which also places them in danger. “We see that the dinosaurs were hoping to cross to another side of the lake,” the officer stated. “Likely, one of the bigger elephants could have slid along with the mature ones were hoping to rescue them instead, were hauled away by water. “Police have inadvertently shut the Haew Narok Waterfall in the northeastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima. The waterfall is in Khao Yai National Park, where you will find approximately 300 wild elephants.
