A video shared by an Indian Forest Services officer shows a biker crossing a road that had been blocked to allow an elephant to pass through. IFS officer Parveen Kaswan criticised the biker while sharing the video on Twitter Thursday.
According to Mr Kaswan, the person riding the bike decided to cross the road even as others waited. In his impatience to get across the road, he was almost hit by the elephant. The video shows him zooming past the animal as it crossed the road. In the background, other vehicles can be seen waiting for the elephant to cross.
Mr Kaswan, while sharing the video, said that the most difficult part of wildlife management is actually managing the humans. "Even after blocking the road by staff this person decided to cross it while others were waiting," he wrote. "Just missed by fraction of a second from becoming a memory."
He also urged others to never do this. Take a look at the video below:
You know what is most difficult part of #wildlife management. Managing the #humans. Even after blocking the road by staff this person decided to cross it while others were waiting. Just missed by fraction of a second from becoming a memory. Don't do this ever. pic.twitter.com/CbL0e3gCDj— Parveen Kaswan, IFS (@ParveenKaswan) February 7, 2020

Ideally speaking... Wildlife management means... management of human mismanagement ????— Prem Garg ???????? (@premgargd) February 7, 2020
Otherwise wildlife is self managed and mannered.
At times Humans can be the "most uncivilized animal" on Earth, after that the blame will come on the Wild Animals as well as the staff managing & protecting the wild!— Emp Aryan Tscherma (@scheevm) February 8, 2020

A few days ago, Mr Kaswan had shared another video which shows a small family of elephants crossing a road. The video shows the elephants looking left and right to cross the road safely. "The family is additionally teaching how to cross the road safely. You watch left right & then cross," wrote Mr Kaswan while sharing the video:
