After finding the elephant, the rangers worked tirelessly to free it from the trap. The process was difficult and dangerous, as the elephant was understandably distressed and could have easily injured the rangers. However, after several hours of carefully cutting away the trap, the elephant was finally freed from its long and painful captivity.

The incident is a testament to the importance of protecting wildlife in Zimbabwe and other countries where endangered species are at risk of poaching. The illegal trade of animal parts is a lucrative business, and poachers often go to great lengths to capture and kill wildlife for their valuable parts.
