TANGLA: At a time when the man-elephant conflict is at its peak in Indo-Bhutan Udalguri, a male elephant calf that had been separated from its natal herd was rescued from Bormukuli village in the fringes of Nonai Forest Reserve in Udalguri district on Monday.

“The six-month old tusker was wandering in the village in the morning hours when locals spotted it and rescued the Elephant Calf with the help of forest officials and released it in the forest,” said Ranger Satya Boro.

“The villagers were happy to feed the baby elephant with a bottle of milk before being handed over to the forest officials,” said a local youth, Paul Toppo. The village is part of an area that has been used as a natural corridor by elephant herds of the Indo-Bhutan landscape since their existence in the habitat. Elephant herds are accustomed to using the age-old elephant corridors as passageways. Very young calves often get separated and sometimes even get trapped into nullahs or trenches, requiring rescue.
