China wild elephants continue to cause chaos

この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -

A barricade of heavy trucks is the latest tactic – to try and guide a rogue herd of elephants away from populated areas in southwest China.
The 15 Asian elephants – a protected species – have been on an epic journey since wandering out of a national park in Yunnan province months ago.
Al Jazeera’s Victoria Gatenby reports.

    Unfortunately Elephants don’t recognise land borders and it’s up to humans to realise that we have to co exist with these animals, rumour has it that they are going to protest and storm Tiananmen Square , power to the Elephants!!!

    Elephants are smart. When mistreated they become angry and aggressive. There is a reason for everything they do

      @Moderator you think that drives the elephant’s mad it may be because every time I hold my 5G phone up to my head instead of using speaker I feel my head throbbing

    The fact that this story has been going on for so long is testimony to the peoples’ patience. Some other countries would just put them to sleep, move them back to the jungles and call it a day.

      There’s even a video of all the elephants lying down to rest / sleep. That’s a testament to how safe the elephants are

    • Avatar Knight Hammer says:

      This might work with one or two elephants, but that’s a herd of 15. It’s pretty much impossible to tranquillize them simultaneously, not to mention that the process could kill them.

    • Avatar Kirk Lazarus says:

      The global uproar that wuld cause now is far more expensive and destructive then the elephants…

    • Avatar shetos 123 says:

      @Knight Hammer
      That’s the point , in most places people would have just killed the elephants and got on with their lives most people aren’t willing to lose his livelyhood for animals even endangered ones

    When I’m watching these elephants approaching my hometown Kunming, I can’t resist thinking of a joke I used to tell my new friends met in big cities like Shanghai or Beijing: “Back in my hometown, we actually ride elephant to go to school.”

    Most of these friends, who had never been to my town, didn’t think it’s a joke and gave me an admiring “wahoo!”

    That was some 20 years ago. People from even within the same country are so lack of understanding, even some common sense, of what’s happening on the other side of their country. They didn’t know that my hometown had the same population of Melbourne today, and even had an airplane company that flies over twenty 737 and later 767 in the 1990’s. There were indeed elephants in my province, but all in the reserves hundreds miles away.

    Even animals in China know that they are living under a lunatic Chinese government.

    • Avatar Tilo Liang says:

      why saying like this? you know well of China? the elephants were treated well along their trip, the government respect their will to go arround and provide food for them, also make people safe. it’s a very happy and funny matter in China, the country do great efforts to the environment, you can check the data of decreasing area of desert in China, and the data of decreasing poverty people. the government just lead their people and the whole environment include animals to a better life, and if these make you unhappy, then I JUST TOLD YOU AND YOUR KIND, NOTHING CAN STOP CHINA TO BECOME GREAT AGAIN IN THE PLANET. but if you can remark things base on a objective and good vision of humanity, believe and be kind/respect to the people who are honest and diligent, do hard work to change their own life, we still can be friends and make the world better together. I ensure you most of Chinese have the same view like me.

  22. Avatar SEBASTIAN K says:

    I feel sorry for the farmers but at the same time the elephants too, we human have taken over their territory and reduce their habitat and am glad the chinese people did not simply shoot these beautiful elephants, there is much wild elephants left in asia.

  26. Avatar 孙景涛 says:

    Al Jazeera is maliciously creating and disseminating fake news. The fact is that this group of elephants was originally in a nature reserve. It is precisely because of China’s protection of the reserve that the number of elephants inside has doubled in 10 years (175-300 ) Elephants, so the sanctuary is not enough to guarantee their food supply and range of activities! Therefore, some elephants leave the reserve to find a new habitat!

    The patience of Chinese authority how they are dealing with these elephants is quite commendable, did not expect this from china but then any one can surprise, as one Indian scripture says ” Should not be surprised by extra ordinarily good people anywhere”.

    • Avatar Joaen Im says:

      Because the media portrays China’s badsides mostly.

    • Avatar zhe wu says:

      I think that’s normal in any country. The earth is shared by humans and animals.They were just looking for food and didn’t hurt anyone. So there’s no need to intervene with them. If the Chinese government does not do so, he will be criticized by the Chinese people.

    • Avatar zhe wu says:

      Buying ivory and wildlife fur in China is a very, very serious crime. I don’t understand the black market and I can confirm that there are no ivory products in the Chinese market. If you have information shows that anyone in China has ivory products, you can report him. The government offers rewards to informants.

    • Avatar zhe wu says:

      Three things not to do in China. First: drug trafficking. No matter what nationality you are, you will be sentenced to death. Not long ago, some Canadians came to China to sell drugs and were eventually executed. The Canadian Prime Minister’s plea for mercy was of no use. Second: selling guns, possibly life in prison. Third: killing wild animals, such as tigers, pandas and elephants, is punishable by up to life imprisonment.

      The reality is that there were 200 elephants in the area where they lived, now there are 300, and they can no longer feed themselves, so they have to look for a new habitat.

  80. Avatar 李玙 says:

    Chinese and local authorities are protecting these elephants!
    Every town the elephant passing by, the people left fruit and corns as food to the elephant on the road, to feed them, and leave them alone. Government cleans space/roads and stops people who got too close to the elephants. They keep people away at least a few km away from the elephant path.
    Drivers have been ordered to stop the main road to stop elephants go to a very crowded city center area, to avoid confrontation with humans, and to redirect them to go to the mountain areas.

    The Elephant family destroyed many agricultural lands and make them flat. The government will pay the damage fees to the farmers.
    A small elephant got drunk by drink some alcohol in a family farmhouse, a day later he catches up with the elephant family.

    The whole of China is watching and we are very happy, excited, curious to see where it heading to. We also concerned why and what make elephant migrate, scientists are trying to figure out the reason, and the government is protecting its path!
    People are highly aware of the protection of animals and have lots of love for them.
    They also feel empathy that small elephants have to do such a long journey at such a young age with the whole family.

    Elephants are the stars in China now!
