A video of two elephants stopping a truck to eat some sugarcane was recent posted online. IFS officer Parveen Kaswan posted the video on Twitter. However, along with it, he also tweeted a note of caution to share why it is not advisable to feed wild animals.
“What will you call this tax,” he wrote while posting the video. The clip opens to show a truck filled with sugarcane in the middle of a road with two elephants standing in front of it. The gentle giants keep on standing until a man perched on top of the vehicle gives them a few pieces of sugarcane.
While replying to his own post, the forest service officer also added a few lines of caution. “Msg I want to convey. Lovely as it may look but never feed wild animals. Sympathy based conservation is enemy of wildlife. They get used to easy and spicy food. As a result roam around roads and outside their habitat. Good number of accidents happen this way. Let them stay wild,” he added.
