60 Hosur elephants that are now stationing in Chaanamaavu kaatu area entered into Thakkali thottam and spoiled the farm produce.

Along with calves, about 60 elephants are now stationing in Chaanamaavu kaatu area near Hosur, adjacent to Hosur – Krishnakiri road.

The jumbos went into farm lands near the villages of Ramapuram, Aniyaalam, Podur, Thorappalli and Ampalapatti villages.

As farmers and villagers complained with forest officials about the loss created by Hosur elephants, they came for help and pushed back the elephants into Chaanamaavu kaatu area.
