My jaw dropped when I saw how small the poisoned arrow was. I couldn’t believe that an arrow that small could cause that much damage. This elephant is extremely lucky that this wildlife crew found it before it was too late.
The amount of pus and infected tissue that was removed made my stomach turn. Blow guns are definitely an effective way to kill an animal. While it isn’t the quickest way, it will definitely do the job.
Lets hope these men did a good job cleaning the wound and that the green clay works like magic.
