Jumbos from Jharkhand Sneak Into Odisha

Keonjhar:23/7/17: Interstate migration of pachyderms from Jharkhand has become a major cause of worry for wildlife personnel in Odisha’s Keonjhar district following intrusion of nearly a hundred elephants into human settlements.

The elephants on rampage have let loose spell of destruction in Harichandanpur, Niundi, Telkoi, Banspal, Ghatagaon, Champua and parts of Joda blocks.

Herds of ninety elephants from Jayanta reserve forest in Jharkhand have strode their way to villages, wrecking havoc in over a dozen of human settlements. Elephants on the prowl have damaged several houses in forest-side villages. The elephants on rampage have ravaged the crop fields, according to forest officials.

Normal life of villagers has been disrupted as elephants from Jarkhand have gone berserk. The jumbos are trespassing into the villages after the sunset. We are spending sleepless nights to keep the animals at bay, remarked a resident of Telkoi, Rajendra Hansda.

“We are tracking the animals and trying to drive them away to their original habitation corridors in Jayanta forest area in Jharkhand”, Rohit Kumar Lenka, Divisional Forest Officer, Keonjhar Forest Division told this web portal.
