Stray wild tuskers driven away in Berhampur
The residents of Berhampur panicked when at least two tuskers strayed into the cashew jungle, outside the College of Fisheries, Mandiapalli, on the outskirt of the town on Wednesday. The pachyderms subsequently moved towards the cashew jungle nearby.
At least 20 forest personnel and several policemen were deployed in the area to prevent any possible man-animal conflict. "While there was no harm to the elephants, there was also no report of destruction caused by the jumbos," said a forest official.
