    We the selfish humans not only encroach on elephants habitat and the go to chase them out from their habitat. Good news for animal lovers.

    What can a person expect if you go to someones home and try to chase them out of their own home ? Humans need to lean from elephants. It is their own land well before we called it ours !!

    Don't be silly, when you comment. He was a father of two children. Have some empathy.

    Elephants attacking people living in bordering villages or wild life officers who try to protect them should be allowed to be shot dead.
