Breathtaking Footage Shows Elephant Approaching Vets For Help After Being ‘Shot In The Head’

This is the breathtaking moment an elephant, who is suspected to have been shot by poachers, came to vets for help.

The enormous animal is thought to have been living with a bullet in its head for up to six weeks before it was discovered by staff from Aware Trust Zimbabwe.

Heartwarming footage shows the sedated elephant being helped by vets in Mana Pools National Park.

At the start of the clip, the elephant is recorded reaching for food – however the hole in the centre of its forehead is very prominant.

Despite having the bullet in its head for more than a month, the creature miraculously survived and is now incredibly on the mend.

The area in Zimbabwe is a hot spot for poachers, hoping to gather ivory by slaughtering the animals.
