Beltangady: Motorists informed about lone caravan roaming in Charmadi Ghati area.Around 7 pm on Wednesday, near the fourth turn of Charmadi Ghati, a vegetable transport vehicle reported that there was in the highway.
By 9 o’clock on Thursday morning, Kadane was found by the motorists near the 7th turn. The sight of a single sable on the side of the Ghati road caused panic among the motorists.
The motorists informed the check post of Charmadi Forest Department about the lone elephant roaming in the Ghati environment and the staff went to the Ghati area and checked. Although the wildebeest was not found at this time, traces of its movement were found.
The environment of Charmadi Ghati is a forested area which is home to many wildlife species. Usually, they are seen by motorists on the road at night, but now they are seen roaming on the forest road during the day. Due to this reason, the forest department officials have suggested that motorists should be more cautious on the Ghati road.
Recently there has been a forest fire in the Ghati environment, during which many wild animals have lost their habitat. Also, as a result of the hot summer, there is a lack of water for the wild animals, so there is a possibility that they are roaming around in search of water and food.
