The elephant is among the cutest animals on the earth. These gigantic friends are always friendly and caring. But sometimes even the nicest guys might run into issues. They may be forced to explore their environment by their intense curiosity or by the depressing truths.
In this scenario, the adult elephant is a case in point. In eastern Iɴᴅɪᴀ’s Garbeta Forest, he was seen stopping a truck and snatching potatoes for a quick snack.
The truck was loaded with potatoes, so the elephant decided to borrow a few. He could do nothing to stop the food from swaying. He ignored the shouts of the onlookers and any attempts to stop him from doing his work.
In a way, the cunning elephant’s behavior is humorous. It does, however, bring up a really distressing fact about the fate of elephants in Iɴᴅɪᴀ. They have been classified as ᴇɴᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀed because of the destruction and fragmentation of their habitat. Due to his extreme hunger, the elephant approached the potato truck in search of food.
Environmentalists estimate that there are roughly 29,000 Asian elephants left in the wild, making Iɴᴅɪᴀ the country with the biggest number of these animals. Habitats in elephant forests are being ᴅᴇsᴛʀᴏʏed by development and agriculture.
Due to their location outside of parks and sanctuaries that provide protection, about 40% of elephant reserves are in danger. Additionally, elephants are not given any special legal protection while they move.
