As of this morning (15th), the elephant group is still activity in Shijie Township, Yimen County, Yixi City, Yunnan. 10 days away from the group, located about 17 kilometers north of the east of the elephant group. The drone monitoring shows that the wild elephant group rests in the woods during the day, and in the evening along the ridges, river valleys, and highways, entering farmland for food, returning to the forest in the early morning, and wiping the mouth after eating the crops day and night. Experts analyze that there may be two reasons why the elephant group can be detoured in the local area. One is that the elephant group is waiting for the group of small elephants, and the other is that the local climate is closer to the West Shuangbanna. The appetite of the group.
Latest dynamics: Elephant group changing mountains and unique “guarding positions”
The CCTV reporter just learned from the Asian Elephant Wild Search and Monitoring Team of the Asian Forest Fire Corps in Yunnan Province that at 2:30 am today (15th), 14 elephants from the field from Nanshan Village, Shima Township, Yimen County “touched the dark “Going south all the way to the west to the mountain road opposite Nanshan. After more than 5 hours, we will rest at Dian Mountain at 8 am this morning and go about 6 kilometers.

Can you leave the field? Elephant said not
In the past few days, in Shijie Township, Yimen County, Yuxi County, Yunnan, on the one hand, staff must ensure the safety of the villagers, and on the other hand, we must think of some ways to allow the elephants to leave the village’s fields and continue to march in the southwest. Then What is the effect? Look at the reporter reported back yesterday afternoon.
Yesterday, the elephant group arrived here. In fact, we smelled the taste of a very strong elephant from a distance. Look at this piece, this footprint is left by the elephant, and this bud rice has been eaten by it.
We use the slag cars to block and the way of food temptation to allow elephants to go to a more suitable area, but these methods are not easy to use every time. For example, yesterday, the position of the elephant is on the mountain opposite us, but there are villages on both sides of the mountain. Here always move forward and walk to the mountain in front. So we arranged a lot of such corn on the road, but when I came again today, I found that the corn was not passive at all. Freshness, because after being pressed by the car in the middle of the road, the elephant will not be interested in these corn.
Every time our cloth defense, in addition to laying some corn at the foot of the mountain and leading the elephant to this mountain, we also have to survey the situation on the mountain. The staff is understanding the situation of the mountain to see if its vegetation is rich. After the elephant can be full after the mountain is up, there is no food it likes.

This should be an ideal channel.
So I still decide to lead it here, suitable for it.
Hope they come here. One is good direction, and eats more here, and relatively gentle, which is conducive to the walking of the small elephant. Because this family with a small elephant, its care for the small elephant is very important at all times.
