Elephant traffic

Orissa plans to manage them

WITH wildlife habitat getting fragmented, elephants are more frequently straying into urban areas and causing mayhem. On January 1, a herd of elephants entered the Berhampur University campus and went on a rampage near campus staff quarters. The son of a staff member was injured. A few days before that a tusker had strayed into Jagannath Vihar, a residential colony in Bhubaneswar, and overturned a Tata Sumo vehicle. Its occupants got away lightly with minor bruises.
