A 20-year-old elephant has been relocated after local farmers complained that the male had been raiding their crops in Mazabuka, Zambia.
Game Rangers International (GRI) and the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) successfully moved the animal from the Nega Nega area of Mazabuka District to the Kafue National Park.
The operation began on Saturday morning and lasted over 12 hours.
The animal was airlifted by helicopter before being holstered onto the back of a crane truck and then carried to a larger transporter truck for the last part of the journey.
Many of the affected community were happy that the animal was moving to a new home rather than being shot.
Arriving at the Kafue National Park, the elephant headed straight into the forest where it is hoped he will enjoy a "long and peaceful life" in his new home.
The operation was supported by the International Fund for Animal Welfare.
