Madikeri, April. 18: Forest Department personnels who are engaged in chasing the elephants to the jungle have been tired of roaming the coffee plantation from morning till evening. Subraiah, along with 15 other personnels were on duty around 8am. The public has lodged a complaint with the forest department demanding to chase the elephants that are running in the forests of Athtimangala, Nellihudikeri and Walnore. When the forest officials carried out the operation with 15 staff, found seventeen elephants and four other calfs inside the Maryland farmhouse today. All efforts to chase the herd have failed and the elephants along with their calfs are not leaving the farm, said Subraiah, the officer in charge of the operation. The elephants were found moving between the coffee plantations, from one place to another because of the fireworks. He told "Shakti" that the attempt to cross the herd from the coffee plantation to the Maldare sanctuary failed. Today, the staff of the department, which is quite tired, had to end the operations. They share the impression that the wild herd may be heading out into the forest at night if they are exposed to this operation during the day. If they notice that the herd are back in the plantation; with the permission of the superiors from the department again, they will set the date and carry out the operation said Subraiah. Staff Charan, Ravi and others participated in the campaign.
