Hanagod: A pair of wild tuskers, that had come out of Sollepura Forest area in Veeranahosahalli Range of Nagarahole National Park and unable to return back to the forest was found roaming on Hunsur-H.D. Kote Main Road besides destroying crops yesterday.

The tusker pair, which had come out of the forest area in search of food and water, raided banana plantation, ginger and maize crops grown in Gurupura, Rajegowdanahundi, Annur and Bheemanahalli villages bordering the forest and have destroyed the crops.

The wild tuskers, which were not able to go back to the forest in the night, were found moving on roadsides and agricultural fields.
