Elephant Menace Afflicts People In Mysuru District

Wednesday, April 27, 2022

Elephant menace has thrown life out of gear in villages attached to forest areas in this district of Karnataka.

In the past two days, three incidents of jumbos straying into the villages have caused havoc, endangering life and property.

While the farmers are worried over destruction of crops, people are rescheduling their travel plans. Though the forest department is successful in sending elephants back to the forests, the pachyderms are moving back to their territory but not before causing heavy damage.

Videos of elephants roaming across the roads and streets of villages in Mysuru have gone viral on social media. The issue has also given way to the debate on man-animal conflict.
