"In areas adjacent to jungles, there have been many occurrences where an Elephant made its way into Haridwar, in this instance it was the District Collector's office, the elephant advanced towards the main gate of the District Court Judiciary and forcefully opened the closed gate. The elephant's navigation along traditional paths is attributed to its remarkable memory. After much effort, the Uttarakhand Forest Department's team actively engaged to redirect the elephant back to its natural habitat," wrote Dr. PM Dhakate in the caption of his post.
