Huge Herd Of 50 Jumbos Created Destruction In Assam's Goalpara district
The huge herd of jumbo reportedly approached from the forest in Agia Dwarka's Kesuridubi area of Goalpara district.
GUWAHATI : The human-elephant is evidently still in the scenario as new episode grabbed everyone's attention in Assam's Goalpara district. As many as 50 jumbos created a havoc in the region on 9th January, Monday.
According to sources, the elephant herd destroyed several houses and destructed several trees. The huge herd of jumbo reportedly approached from the forest in Agia Dwarka's Kesuridubi area of Goalpara district.
Apart from houses, the elephants additionally damaged paddy harvest field of the village. Destruction caused by elephants, is not a new phenomenon. Reports of wild tuskers damaging properties and lives has been recorded several times in the past.
In December 2022, Goalpara district witnessed a vigorous elephant attack in a village. The episode occurred at Dhekiabari village, where wild tuskers came out from the forest area and damaged paddy field and rice harvest.
However, no human deaths or injury was reported in this particular case. The ongoing human-elephant conflict has caused a major issue in today's scenario.
In most cases, jumbos reportedly come out of their habitat in search of food, enters human residence and end up causing destruction. Not just human, but several elephant deaths were also registered last year. The prime cause of death in most cases came out as electrocution.
In order to minimise this ongoing issue, the state government has recently sanctioned the construction of elevated roads near one of the protected regions inside the capital city. The Assam Cabinet approved the creation of varied underpasses along the edge of the Deepor Beel Bird Sanctuary in Guwahati.
