South Africa: A legless elephant in South Africa has not only learned to walk with its heavy existence, but with the help of other elephants in the herd, it has started to lead a normal life, the video of which is being liked a lot.
31-year-old expert Dylan Pons found this elephant in his private game reserve and named it Wotomi. It was also previously spotted in a network of wildlife monitoring cameras. Dylan and his colleagues spotted her near a small dam in the biological sanctuary, resting in the water to escape the heat.
According to experts, despite having three legs, this helpless creature has not surrendered, and instead of one leg, a small piece of meat appears to be hanging. However, the reason for the loss of the leg has not been revealed so far. Some experts believe that an animal may have attacked him at some point in his childhood, which has caused this permanent damage.
Surprisingly, the other elephants in his herd also take special care of him and surround him. Votomi is still growing and supporting itself exceptionally well.
Animal protection experts have urged the public to take special care if they see a wutomi or similar animal on the side of the road, because despite their weight, they are active for survival.
