As the sun is getting hotter wildlife of Jim Corbett is getting affected.
Elephants are seen escaping the jungle in search of water. The rise in temperature is causing elephants to a lose temper which becomes dangerous for the tourists as they have started attacking them. Fifteen such attacks have been recorded at ten places within two months, most of these places are elephant corridors where they gather to drink water.
According to the sources due to increasing temperature, these thirsty elephants become fiery and attack anyone who comes near to them. Even the wildlife experts are worried about the situation and say that due to the human interference in corridors elephants fail to decide their movement in addition to that the poor arrangements in the jungle have made them irascible. Elephants of Corbett and Ramnagar jungle division often come to Kosi river to assuage their thirst. In such situations the human interference in the area of elephants makes them lose their temper and they attack them as a result.
