A man in Assam has landed in police custody after teasing wild elephants

A young man in Assam has landed in police custody after he was filmed caning wild elephants. Ajoy Goud was seen whipping a herd of enraged elephants in the Doboka forest area of the state.

Footage shows Goud using a cane to beat one elephant about its legs. The animal quietly moves away and Goud then proceeds to cane other elephants in the herd. He continues doing so until one of the enraged elephants chases him away.

Bizarrely enough, he continues using his cane even while being chased, and runs right back towards the elephant after a few seconds.

Goud’s stunt has landed him in hot water. The forest department of Golaghat district in Upper Assam noted that not only did he stand dangerously close to the wild elephants, he also whipped and teased them with a cane.
