Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Parveen Kaswan shared a video, which is making rounds on social media, depicting a disturbing scene wherein a truck is seen recklessly driving towards a herd of elephants crossing a jungle road. The video captures the tense moment as several elephants react defensively by charging at the truck, shedding light on the precarious situation instigated by the driver's actions.
The video has ignited a wave of outrage and condemnation from viewers, who have expressed deep concern over the reckless actions of the truck driver. Many have voiced their concern, pointing out that such behaviour not only poses a grave danger to both humans and wildlife but also violates legal regulations.
Many also emphasised that wildlife holds precedence and right of way in forest areas, and it is important to respect and protect their habitat. Additionally, there has been a call for stricter enforcement of laws to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future and to hold accountable those who endanger the lives of animals and humans alike through their irresponsible behaviour on jungle roads.

A user commented, “The animal is the driver.” Another added, "That tractor driver is Roque should be arrested.” A third said, “Can the administration identithe tractor driver and prosecute for disorderly conduct and intent to cause harm to wildlife?”
A fourth remarked, “While driving through a forest, remember that you are trespassing in the animals' property, not the other way around.”
“I hope they’re able to find, charge and punish him with a massive fine,” demanded another.
This incident has sparked a broader conversation about the need for increased awareness and education regarding wildlife conservation and the importance of coexisting harmoniously with the natural world.
