Mariane, who ran without misdirection, was taken care of by the villagers
In the month of June 2017, a herd of wildebeests came near Hosur looking for food. A female elephant in a herd of wild boars was electrocuted at night near Tolvapeta village. A herd of wildebeests, which had been near the dead forest for a long time, left there early in the morning. However, the baby elephant, which was crying near its mother, entered the nearby Tatikal village without knowing its direction. The villagers rescued the baby elephant that was roaming inside the village and took care of it by feeding it with milk.
