Caused a lot in southwest China serious disturbances 15 Elephants in Recent Weeks: The herd escaped from a nature park in April and has since grazing 500 miles of cornfields, destroying barns and trampling plenty of whatever gets in its way. On Thursday, the animals arrived at the city limits of Kunming, Yunnan Province, which has a population of 6.5 million.
Nearly 700 police and experts in the city were waiting for the herd with 10 tons of food, mostly corn and pineapple. Their goal is to guide the herd with trucks, drones, and food on a route from which they can safely leave the city. Residents were asked not to expose the elephants to food, stare, keep them away and not disturb them with fireworks or fireworks.
It is not yet known why the elephants set out, and it is conceivable that they are looking for a new home, but it is also possible that a new, inexperienced leader may have taken over and simply lost.
The Asian elephant is under increased danger, in China in the wild there are only 300 individuals of this species, most of them in Yunnan Province. (BBC)
