Talking of going to space. First start with building a proper sewerage pit.

sorry wildlife officers without a preventive action plan. Why the cabinet can not pass a bill to have fences around such dangerous places in order to prevent re-occurrence of such tragedies? wildlife officers should identify such places.

what a waste of a majestic creature. before building fences proper sewer pits should be built. this clearly shows that the number of elephants killed by falling into holes or pits have increased. and what are the wild life authorities doing. an obviously this elephant was in an residential areas, where is the care taken to eliminate these issues.
