Did the animals cause the suspicion of a leak? Because the water level was mysteriously going down? Until it was discovered that the animals were drinking it?

So at first nobody saw the animals drinking the water? did this happen at night? at a place where there are few people?
The water was there for a special purpose to be find out? was it drinking water for people? for animals different from those who actually drank it? for watering plants? for washing anything? bathing?

It was recently reported that a luxury hotel in Africa suspected they had a leak in their swimming pool because the level often dropped overnight. Then an elephant was observed early one morning. It was leaning over the wall with its trunk in the pool, drinking.
