Elephant lies on the ground after being pulled from a pond

A tranquillised wild female elephant lies on the ground after being pulled from a pond by Bangladesh forest officials and villagers in the Jamalpur district, some 150 kms north of capital Dhaka, on August 11, 2016.
An elephant thought to have travelled 1,000 kilometres from India into Bangladesh after becoming separated from its herd by floods was stopped in its tracks August 11, in a dramatic rescue that nearly ended in disaster. The distressed female ran amok after it was hit by a tranquilliser dart and charged into a pond, where it was only saved from drowning with the help of local villagers who jumped in to keep it from toppling into the water, according to a local vet. / AFP PHOTO / STR
