A video has surfaced on the internet which shows a biker crossing a road that had been blocked to allow an elephant to pass through. IFS Parveen Kaswan shared the video on Twitter on February 6 and criticised the biker. Through the video, it can be seen that the person decided to cross the road even as others waited. His impatience to move across made him almost hit by the elephant. The 36-second video clip shows that the man speedily rode past the elephant as it crossed the road. In the background, other vehicles can be seen waiting for the elephant to cross.
You know what is most difficult part of #wildlife management. Managing the #humans. Even after blocking the road by staff this person decided to cross it while others were waiting. Just missed by fraction of a second from becoming a memory. Don't do this ever. pic.twitter.com/CbL0e3gCDj— Parveen Kaswan, IFS (@ParveenKaswan) February 7, 2020

At times Humans can be the "most uncivilized animal" on Earth, after that the blame will come on the Wild Animals as well as the staff managing & protecting the wild!— Emp Aryan Tscherma (@scheevm) February 8, 2020
Ideally speaking... Wildlife management means... management of human mismanagement 😂— Prem Garg 🇮🇳 (@premgargd) February 7, 2020
Otherwise wildlife is self managed and mannered.
