Among the elephant rescues that Xiong remembers, is the rescue of a wild elephant called “Longlong”, he is worried about him as the elephant’s feet were tangled with vines, and there was an annular wound on his body, and when he saw him for the first time, he was shocked because it had a lot of pus on the wound and was severely ulcerated,” according to the story published by China International Television Network.
