Elephant walks on the middle of a busy road. This is how the traffic reacted

First Published: 1st December, 2022 18:48 IST

The police and forest department officials issued an advisory requesting commuters to give passage to the big animals.

People travelling on the Bhalukpong-Tippi road in Bomdila forest area of West Kameng district in Arunachal Pradesh were in for some excitement. A wild elephant appeared in the middle of the busy road forcing the vehicles to hit the brakes.

The vehicles stopped up by the roadside and waited for the jumbo to leave. The commuters obviously did not want to miss the opportunity. They clicked pics and recorded videos as the elephant walked away.

A video shared by Bomdila Police shows an elephant walking across the road in to the forest area.

Soon after the video was shared, the police and forest department officials issued an advisory requesting commuters to give passage to the big animals.

“It’s the season for elephants on their return trail from Saraibil to Pakke. An elephant was seen crossing at Dedzeling (Bhalukpong-Tippi). It will go on its own and let’s not bother it. Forest and police are keeping a close watch,” Bomdila police tweeted while sharing the video.
