A video posted by an officer of the Indian Forest Services shows a biker crossing a blocked road to enable an elephant to traverse. The biker was attacked by IFS officer Parveen Kaswan while posting the video on Twitter Thursday.
The person riding the bike, Mr Kaswan says, decided to cross the road even as others were waiting. He was nearly hit by the elephant, in his impatience to cross the road. The video shows him zooming past the animal as they traversed the road. Many cars can be seen in the background waiting for the elephant to pass.
While sharing the video, Mr Kaswan said that the most difficult part of managing wildlife is actually managing the men. "Even after workers blocked the road this individual wanted to cross it while others waited," he wrote. "Just missed from becoming a record by a fraction of a second"
The video has been viewed more than 25,000 times since being shared online. Many people agreed with Mr Kaswan in the comments section while criticizing the impatience of the biker
Mr Kaswan had shared another video a few days ago that shows a small family of elephants crossing a road. The video shows the elephants looking left and right to safely traverse the road. "Additionally, the family is teaching how to safely cross the road. You watch the right and then the right," Mr Kaswan wrote while sharing the video:
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
