Wild elephant stuck in Rengali canal at Odisha’s Muktapasi

Dhenkanal: A wild elephant was stuck in Rengali canal at Muktapasi under Parjang police limits in Odisha’s Dhenkanal district on Wednesday.

Locals informed that the jumbo was crossing the canal along with an elephant herd late last night. However, the tusker got stuck in the canal.

Hundreds of people gathered on both sides of the canal and a bridge passing through the canal to witness the elephant.

The forest officials have reached the spot to rescue the elephant.

The pachyderm’s repeated attempts to come out of the canal yielded no fruitful result due to high water current.

Last week, one elephant had also got stuck in the canal. However, it came out of the water successfully.
