Elephants

Posted by: Bratish Poddar on

This is about the article "animal people" in the September issue of sanctuary Asia. There were some incidents mentioned of elephants getting lose in cities. Another such incident occurred recently in Mysore. An elephant from the jungle came into the city and a man was also killed. People were following the elephant around, shooting videos, even throwing stones and this probably further angered the elephant. This was mainly due to habitat encroachment.
There was also some text on elephant behaviour. Elephants really are gentle giants and i would like you all to read this article also-
