Last week I wrote about our surprise encounter with a tiger from
the wild in Kumaon Surprise. Today let me share another wild encounter story.
We were on our way back from Wayanad, a little hill station in Kerala to Bangalore.
Read my Wayanad Story.
You have to cross the Bandipur Tiger Reserve on your way.
While driving back we saw a few cars parked on the side of the highway. This
isn’t a place you park your car! Instead of stopping and adding to the queue we
decided to drive past few cars.
What we saw ahead was a sight to remember. A wild elephant
had some out of the forest and was being busy by the road. Two guys on a bike
decided to show their bravado or rather foolishness and decided to tease the
big guy. They honked and made weird sounds. The elephant was silent for some time.
But then I guess he too quite had it!
The poor animal was getting irritated with the sound and in a
split second charged towards them. The guys on bike tried to speed off! In the
heat of the moment they almost did a willy to vanish from there.
Sometimes I feel bad how humans try to find amusement by
instigating the wild animals! I managed to click a photo of the elephant while
he was retreating to the forest!
