COLOMBO, SRI LANKA — The Sri Lankan Navy got a jumbo-sized surprise last week when a patrol boat spotted an elephant stranded in the ocean an incredible 9 miles from the shore. A mammoth rescue operation was launched last Tuesday when the elephant was found off Sri Lanka’s northeast coast. The elephant was likely washed out to sea in a riptide when it was crossing a lagoon that separates two large areas of jungle, the Guardian reported, citing the Sri Lankan navy. Wildlife officials and two more navy boats were quickly rushed to the area. A team of divers tied ropes to the elephant and it was dragged gently toward the shore. It took around 12 hours for the rescue operation to be completed. The elephant was then handed over to wildlife officials for inspection. ------------------------------------------------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Animal attack - Amazing, an elephant swimming in the sea!!!

Okay, it's kind of a crappy video, but I'm excited to have seen my first sea elephant AKA Heteropod - species probably Carinaria japonica. (the pale thing headed into the green algae) It's a free-swimming, visual predator - but also a snail. Saw it today off the rocks at the Humboldt Bay, California, North Jetty. It has a shell and a foot that serves as a swimming fin.

Have you ever seen a diving Elephant? http://freedom-divers.com Elephant swimming in the Bay of Bengal, Andaman Islands, India. http://freedom-divers.com DISCLAIMER & EXPLANATION REGARDING ANY POTENTIAL ACCUSATIONS OF "ANIMAL CRUELTY" - The guy whom so many have accused of mistreating Rachan the Elephant by "poking", "forcing him into the water", etc, etc... That guy is actually Rachan's Mahout, a.k.a trainer, and has been raising Rachan for countless years; they have a very special bond and he is very, very fond of Rachan!- - When swimming, he's actually NOT hitting the elephants ear for any other reason than to keep Rachan safe. Yes, really!!! The bay where one can see Rachan swimming has a narrow sandbank underwater, stretching from one side of the bay to the other. Rachan needs to swim along this sand bank for safety reasons so as to avoid going out into deeper water- especially as he is getting very old now, or he runs the risk of drowning if he ventures into deeper water. The stick is ONLY meant to keep him on the right path. There are moments later in the video where he swims without the Mahout. Also, it's a slight catch 22: though Rachan LOVES swimming, he obviously cannot see clearly underwater, so actually needs his Mahout to help him. Not Cruel in ANY way. - and before you get too prematurely angry about the sound of that: it should be noted he is never forced into the water! In fact, there are even some days where all the divers can be ready & waiting for him in the water, and he just won't go in! It's up to him! Ever just woken up one day and decided that you didn't feel like getting wet right at that moment?? Same thing, and no force on Earth can push an elephant that size into the water- more to the point, we don't even try - and the "chain" around his ankle? Not actually a chain! It's in fact a ceremonial "ribbon"/ rope that the owners tie around his ankle for spiritual reasons. The same practise is carried out in all nations which consider the Elephant a sacred animal, such as India and Thailand to name but a few. In fact, this rope is very similar to the "Mongkon" head gear that the ancient siamese warriors would wear to bless a field of battle; a tradition still honoured by all modern day Muay Thai practitioners, and so once again, allow me to reassure everyone by saying: this is not animal cruelty. - Finally, for those concerned about his Tusks being sawn off, again, it's a safety issue: as his tusks got so big at one stage, it actually began causing him to have unnecessary weight, pressure on his teeth, gums and entire jaw. It was only when a Vet suggested "trimming" them for Rachan's overall comfort and well being that the decision was made to saw off the end. SO I HOPE EVERYONE WHO WAS EVEN THINKING OF POSTING A NEGATIVE COMMENT ABOUT THIS VIDEO AND INSINUATING THAT THIS IS IN ANY WAY AN ACT OF ANIMAL CRUELTY, THINKS TWICE BEFORE DOING SO.

Billschannel viewer Judy Labrona sent these pictures to me on my Facebook page (facebook.com/billschannel) Jusy says she took the pictures herself while she was on vacation in Sri lanka. Judy writes “ I went snorkeling and came across a guy taking his elephant for a swim. I started taking some pictures and then - out of the blue - this shark showed up!" “The good thing was the shark was so fascinated with the elephant I don't think he even noticed me.” As it turns out, the shark eventually swam off and the elephant headed back to shore. There wasn't a scratch on either creature. (It must have been love at first sight). I don’t know how real these pictures are, but they are so cool, why ruin the fun of it. What I really question is who would win if these two got into a fight? If you have any weird or interesting wildlife pictures send them to me at [email protected] or facebook.com/billschannel

Story of a Swimming Elephant - as part of the news and politics series by GeoBeats. Only one swimming elephant is left in the Andaman Island Archipelago located in the Indian Ocean's Bay of Bengal. At sixty years old, Rajan the elephant is finally retiring from a life of hard labor. Along with some two hundred other elephants, Rajan was brought from the mainland to clear trees from the islands for the lumber companies, but the only way to move the elephants from island to island was to have them swim. Rajan now only goes swimming a couple times a day for a few minutes with his owner and trainer. The other swimming elephants have since left the islands, but Rajan has remained as a tourist attraction and as a part of the local culture in this exotic and remote corner of India, which was off limits to any foreign visitors until 1995. Only 38 of the 572 Islands in the Archipelago are inhabited, and even fewer allow tourists to visit. The Andaman Islands are home to some of the most pristine protected land on Earth. There are indigenous local tribes, but according to Indian laws, it is illegal to make contact with them because of tour groups in the past exploiting their isolation.

Incredible rescue of elephant lost swimming five miles out at sea. At least he packed his trunk! Elephant has a 'miraculous escape' after being swept FIVE MILES out to sea while wading between islands in Sri Lanka. The giant mammal was towed to safety by the navy in a 12-hour rescue operation. It was desperately trying to keep its trunk above water when spotted out at sea. It is thought the animal was swept away when crossing the Kokkilai lagoon.

Life of Roy is the video blog from my recent trip to the Andaman Islands. 5 days in the most purest form of sea I've seen in my life. I got to walk on the sea bed while having fishes circle the life out me, jump off boats, scuba dive at a government protected island that was destroyed by the tsunami in 2004 but has reformed over the last 8 years to be one of the most beautiful spots to dive with 20m visibility, run fearing sea crocodiles at bay, swim with 'Rajan - The only sea swimming elephant left in the world' and throw people in the sea. In this video, you will spot Anisha Bangera, Anusha Pinto, Manisha Sharma, Rammohan Paranjape, Varun Vazir, Steven Hertelier, Karan Batth, David, Rajan The Elephant and a bunch of locals.

IN no small feat an elephant has been rescued from the ocean after being found swimming 16km off the coast of Sri Lanka. The creature was spotted by a navy patrol boat, floating with its head submerged and seeming to struggle to lift its trunk above the water to get air.A team of divers and second navy vessel were dispatched to the location, rescuing the stranded elephant by tying ropes around its body and guiding it back to the shore with the using boats.Department of Wildlife officials were also sent to help, joining forces with the Sri Lankan Navy by “providing necessary instruction which became extremely vital” to the success of this unusual rescue mission, according to the Navy’s official statement.It took the crew a gruelling 12 hours to safely direct the animal back to dry land, where it was then given into the care to the wildlife officials for assessment. According to navy officials, the elephant was likely dragged out to sea after being caught in a current of the coast near the town of Kokkilai. A researcher from the conservation group A Rocha, Avinash Krishnan, told The Guardian that elephants are actually quite capable swimmers and it is not uncommon for them to swim to get to different landmasses. “They’re very good swimmers. Swimming about 15km from the shore is not unusual for an elephant,” he said.While they can swim when necessary, Krishnan says they tire very quickly because swimming burns up a lot of their energy, so it was lucky that this elephant was found because it may have been out to sea for a considerable amount of time.
