    The elephants are on the rampage, they are demanding the imposing of 15% tax.

    There are signs all over the place that advice visitors to not feed animals. Yet people do so. It's quite possible this elephant was used to being fed by visitors , associated a jeep of people with food and came looking for some. Stop feeding the animals. Let the park wardens take care of it.

    Don't blame the elephant, we are in their territory. Blame the authority managing the park and find a solution soon before something serious happens.

    A hungry elephant is an angry elephant.

    The visitors feed these animals and now they expect food from visitors. A tragedy is waiting to happen.
