Even when firecrackers were set off to scare away the wild Asian elephant, he kept eating his lunch.
A wild elephant came up to a truck on a road in the Garhbeta district of eastern India not long ago. He was determined to steal a few potatoes from a truck full of potatoes, even though people told him to go back to the bush and tried other ways to scare him away. A bystander took a picture of the event and saw the elephant move the truck’s top tarp to the side with his trunk before getting inside. The elephant didn’t seem to care about the noise.
People around him didn’t know what else to do, but the elephant was able to get some treats out of the cage and stood there eating them. The movie is funny, but it also talks about a bigger problem in India. Elephants that are almost extinct are coming into more contact with people because their habitat is getting worse and getting broken up.
Elephants are more likely to hurt crops when people and elephants live closer together. This can lead to serious conflicts and people hurting the elephants in return. This time, the elephant was able to eat without hurting itself, and only a few potatoes were lost.
