The Wildlife Department says that the wild elephant calf found in Suriyawewa with a disability had been diagnosed as congenitally deformed.
 
A group of Wildlife officers found the 1-year-old calf on Sunday during a mission in Suriyawewa to chase away wild elephants that are encroaching the surrounding villages in Hambantota.
 
The calf which had external wounds was hobbling using the trunk because of its deformity.
 
Later, the calf was taken away by the wildlife staff to be treated.
