Veterinarians in India joined the efforts to rescue an injured wild elephant that had been stuck in a marshy area for days.

The 10-year-old elephant had a wounded leg making his withdrawal especially complicated.

Villagers were tending to the elephant and bringing him food. Oftentimes they also brought their own domesticated elephants for extra support.

Touching photos captured show the elephants intertwining trunks.

According to the Associated Press, the state Forest and Environment Ministry confirmed that tamed elephants were participating in the rescue attempt at the Amchang Wildlife Sanctuary, 425 miles east of Gauhati, the capital of Assam state.

Sadly events such as this have become common in the state because many wild elephants stray from their herd’s in search of food.
