A wild bull elephant approached the Bumi Hills Safari Lodge in Zimbabwe. He looked inside the windows and then waited.
The local humans saw that he appeared to be injured and dehydrated. So they called in a veterinarian, who tranquilized the elephant and examined him. He found that the elephant had been shot, probably by a poacher. Now Ben, as they have named the elephant, is on the mend. The Telegraph reports:
It was not clear when the incident took place but Ben survived the attempts on his life after the vet treated him and disinfected his wounds. Ben now wears a tracking device to ensure his improvement can be monitored as it continues healing on the property.
