Forest Department chalks out action plan to arrest elephantine problem

State Government seeks assistance from Orissa and Karnataka

Hyderabad, October 22, 2007

The elephant menace that is causing untold misery to the people of Srikakulam and Vizianagaram districts for the last few weeks has put the Forest Department to chalk out an action plan on a priority basis. The State Government has sought the assistance of forest officials of Orissa and Karnataka to tackle the problem.

The death toll rose to eight and the panic stricken people living in the rural areas are spending sleepless nights. The Forest Department plans to drive back the nine strong herd of elephants into the Lashkari Wildlife Sanctuary in Orissa. The Principal Chief Conservator of Forest and Chief Wildlife Warden Hitesh Malhotra flew down to the city to make an on-the-spot study of the situation.

Six trained elephants along with their mahouts would prevent the movement of these pachyderms towards the human habitations during daytime. According to an official, it entire operation of driven back to the sanctuary will take a week days time. He cautioned the villagers not to move in the direction through which the wind blows as the elephants can smell human beings from a long distance.
