Mahouts oppose shifting of their elephants

Unable to bear the separation from their elephants, mahouts Urune, Jaya and Annaiah, who opposed the shifting of their elephants, were seen with tears in their eyes and did not come to board the elephants to the trucks that had arrived. It was only after the Forest officials convinced them, the mahouts came and boarded the elephants to the trucks. Chhattisgarh CCF C.S. Tiwari and Trainer Ramakrishna, led the Forest officials and mahouts from Chhattisgarh, who accompanied the elephants to their State.
