Dhenkanal: A massive herd of elephants was seen passing NH-55 near Haladiabahal Gadasila Section under Dhenkanal Forest Range early this morning.
A video capturing the jumbo herd passing through the road is certainly a treat to the eyes.
Reportedly, around 50 elephants, including claves, were found crossing the NH early this morning disrupting vehicular movements. Road traffic on Cuttack-Sambalpur route was affected.
Sources said the pachyderms had strayed out of Mahabirod forest range in Parjang and headed towards Matharagadi reserve forest crossing Brahmani river. The pachyderms often pass through the NH, for which the forest officials help them cross the four-lane road, sources added.
