Odisha Witnesses Another Death Of Elephant In Angul District

August 27

One more elephant passed away at Jagannathpur, which is located in the Angul district of Odisha and is within the Satakosia wildlife sanctuary.

Poachers had probably set up live wires in order to catch wild boars, but unfortunately, one of the pachyderms managed to become caught in the trap and perish as a result. After seeing the elephant’s body laying motionless within the preserve, locals reported their discovery to forest officials.

Jogananda, the Satakosia Divisional Forest Officer (DFO), raced to the location as soon as he was informed and immediately began an investigation into what had happened.

However, the actual cause of the jumbo’s passing cannot be determined until after a post-mortem examination, according to the officials.

In Wednesday of this week, two female elephants were found to have died on the grounds of Krishi Vigyan Kendra in Keonjhar after coming into touch with a live electric power wire. The Sadar range is located in Keonjhar. The continual reporting of tragic events involving the loss of elephants is deeply upsetting to the general public.

The startling rise in the number of elephants that have been found dead in Odisha has called into doubt the efficacy of the state government’s strategy for the preservation of elephants. It would appear that Odisha has become a cemetery for elephants.

According to information provided by Odisha’s Minister of Forestry and Environment Pradip Kumar Amat to the State Assembly, 784 elephants have been lost to extinction in the state over the past ten years. Therefore, each year, on average, the state experiences 78 fatalities. The news that human activity is responsible for a significant number of deaths is extremely upsetting.
