After the elephants visited us they visited Chalilo village. There were reports that they were destroying crops and attacking farmers. The ZAWA warden and the scout manager sent a group of scouts to the village to chase them away. I do agree that as the wildlife officers in the area ZAWA and the park should help the farmers. If not than the people take the problem into their own hands and elephants may end up being killed. It is a tough situation however in that with the increasing negative interactions the elephants have with humans the more likely they are to become wary and fearful whenever they encounter them. Be it in the park or in the village.
