Panic has gripped Tinsukia’s Jagun as wild elephants ventured into the residential area, causing fear and concern among local residents. Efforts by the forest department to contain the situation and guide the elephants back to their natural habitat have proven unsuccessful thus far, despite repeated attempts.

The presence of wild elephants in residential areas poses a significant risk to both humans and the animals themselves. Residents of Jagun are living in fear as the elephants roam the streets, causing damage to property and creating a potential safety hazard.

The forest department has been working tirelessly to resolve the situation and ensure the safety of both the elephants and the residents. However, their efforts have been hampered by the unpredictable behavior of the animals and the challenging terrain of the area.

Local authorities have urged residents to exercise caution and avoid confronting the elephants or attempting to drive them away. Instead, residents are advised to stay indoors and alert the authorities if they spot any elephants in the area.

The presence of wild elephants in residential areas is not uncommon in Assam, where human-wildlife conflict is a persistent issue. Rapid urbanization and encroachment into forested areas have led to increased instances of elephants straying into human habitats in search of food and shelter.

Efforts to mitigate human-wildlife conflict in Assam include measures such as the construction of elephant corridors and the implementation of crop protection schemes. However, these efforts can only be effective if supported by comprehensive conservation strategies and community engagement initiatives.

As the situation in Jagun remains tense, local residents are calling for urgent action to address the root causes of human-wildlife conflict in the region. With the cooperation of the forest department and the support of the community, it is hoped that a solution can be found to ensure the peaceful coexistence of humans and elephants in Tinsukia’s Jagun.
