Dr. Kushal Sarma, whom you may remember from previous elephant health clinics AES funded and the electrocuted bull elephant he got back on his feet has continued to be, in his words: ' badly busy'!
Recently, he had a call to come immediately to the neighboring state of Nagaland, where human-elephant conflict struck again. A wild bull killed four villagers and the angry residents threatened to kill him if Dr. Sarma could not remove him. Luckily, he was immobilized and relocated successfully. Not too soon thereafter a stranded elephant washed down the Brahmaputra into Bangladesh and desperately needed the doctor's expertise to be returned to its home. Dr. Sarma made the trip to help it out of its dire straits. The flooding in the area has created a disastrous situation for wildlife and humans alike.
