| Tuesday | 27th July, 2021
Locals were found scaring a herd of elephants crossing the highway.
Pascal Munda of Morongi tea estate at Numaligarh in Upper Assam pays a high price for allegedly teasing wild elephants. On Sunday evening, tea garden workers came across a herd of wild elephants crossing the National Highway 39.
ARE THEY HUMANS?

The visuals show the workers and passers-by attempted to chase the animals, despite the fact that only a few of them had previously approached the pachyderms.
One of the herd members became enraged by the constant baiting and teasing and pursued the people. Pascal fell while attempting to flee the chasing elephant and was stomped by the enraged animal. He was pronounced dead at Golaghat Civil Hospital.
Dr Kushal Sharma, a well-known elephant expert, conveyed his condolences to the grieving family.
According to Suklabaidya, the state administration has taken a number of steps to reduce human-animal conflict.
He said that one of the solutions is the development of a committee that informs the railways, power, and forest departments about the movement of animals in critical areas.
In order to address elephant-human conflict, local officials have been urged to organize volunteer organizations that may work together to prevent animal damage.
The World Wild Fund (WWF) has been hired to train the Village Defense Party (VDP) on how to reduce human-elephant conflict.
