We were traveling back to Tala village in bandhavgarh, on the way in the forest we sighted this long tusked elephant. It was strange, as Bandhavgarh wildlife doesn’t include elephants. This elephant is owned by forest department of Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, and the elephant is used to trace tigers.! My heart whispered, Cool job mate.! Elephant plays an important role to move tiger outside the locality or to move tigers away from the residential areas for the safety of tigers as well as the the animals (cows and buffalo) raised by local farmers.!
