Elephants have created a huge panic in the areas adjacent to the forest in Uttarakhand. People are also in panic in Kotdwar of Pauri Garhwal. Here elephants are attacking people as well as damaging the fields. Another alarming news has come amid the increasing infiltration of elephants. These days, here in the forest, the elephants are roaming with their children in a herd. The elephant remains in a very aggressive posture regarding the safety of its children. In such a situation, stay away from the forests as much as possible. If you are planning to take pasture leaves or go to the forest for an excursion, then postpone this plan for the time being. A little carelessness of yours can cost your life, so don't do it. The Divisional Forest Officer of Lansdowne Forest Division said that in the herd of elephants, the mother or female elephant is the head of the herd and she has responsibility for the safety of all the children. In such a situation, the elephant remains very aggressive and does not allow anyone to beat around the herd.
Because of the danger, the general public is being warned to stay away from the forest. The entry of the common man into the forest is not being stopped. Let us tell you that in the last two months in the Kotdwar area, 4 people have died in the elephant attack, including two women. On May 22, two people, including a woman, were killed by an elephant near the Chamaria source in the Laldhang range. A few days later, on June 1, an elephant had killed a person near the Sigaddi source. Children were also present along with the attacking elephant. All incidents of attack have taken place within a few kilometers of drinking water sources. Different herds of elephants are roaming these days in the forests of Lansdowne Forest Division. There are also children in the herd. Therefore, we appeal to you to avoid going towards the forest as much as possible these days. Do not take the warnings of the forest department lightly.
