Elephant terror continues

Posted by Anup Baral October 08 , 2016 :
A herd of eight wild elephants has entered the human settlements and destroyed the houses and food grains, said Chairman of Hariyali Youth Family for Human Elephant Conflict Management Dinesh Das. The locals, most of them squatters and landless, in Rajgadh, Maheshpur, Prithvinagar, Pathamari and other VDCs are at the receiving end due to elephant terror. So far, the elephants have destroyed as high as 50 houses since April. Chief of District Forest Officer Indramani Bhandari said that a one-eyed elephant in the herd has turned the most violent. Meanwhile, the District Forest Office said that electronic fencing to prevent the wild tuskers from entering into the villages is going on in Bahundangi area in the district. RSS
