Bhawanipatna, Feb 21: It seems despite all efforts of the Forest Department to check the jumbo deaths in Karlapat Wildlife Sanactuary it is far from seizing as officials found the carcass of one more elephant calf from the area on Saturday night.
While the cause of the death of the calf is yet to be ascertained, Hemorrhagic Septicaemia is being seen as the most possible reason for the same.
Notably, taking into account the fact that the previous six jumbo deaths were caused by the Septicaemia the Forest Department has put its best foot forward by deploying drones for effective tracking of the elephants. The move is aimed at preventing healthy jumbos from approaching the infected site and get access to the stream where the elephants were found dead.
Meanwhile, the three-member Central team of Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change which is in Karlapat currently is about to complete its review tomorrow.
After conducting its study between February 19 and 22, the Central team will submit a detailed report to the ministry by mentioning causes, prevention and treatment of the disease in it.
