2013-04-08: Forest department officials rescued a baby elephant, less than a year-and-a-half-old, from a 15-foot open well into which it fell during a nightly raid by a herd of elephants on a homestead in the Urulanthanni division of Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, Thattekkadu. The efforts to rescue to the cuddly little baby elephant took more than three hours and a dozen people, who used earthmoving equipment to dig a shallow channel out of the well so that the animal could be coaxed out of the well.
