It was not an easy job and there was no quick way to get around it. The engine issue needed some time to be resolved and even after an hour of trying, the machine still wasn’t repaired. Another volunteer stepped up to give recommendations on how to fix the equipment and the elephants started making strange noises again.
While the mechanics were busy with the excavator, the other volunteers spared no time in also trying to dig manually as fast but as carefully as they could. Some of the elephants were braying, while some were restlessly pacing back and forth, so the others had to help calm them down. There was fear in some humans that the elephants would start attacking them out of desperation, but they continued to work knowing that a precious life depended on them. Photo Credit: Credits
