An elephant was killed in Gaujani here on 31 January due to electric shock. The elephant was electrocuted because the farmer had planted a bulb to protect the crop of wheat grown in his field from wildlife. The elephant grabbed that bulb from its trunk, causing it to grip the current. Rural Lalit Upreti says that his villages adjoining the forest have always been under the threat of wildlife. The forest department has no concrete plan to stop this conflict, due to which this conflict is increasing.
At the same time, according to rural Mahesh Joshi, the increasing population of wildlife has started to fall on humans. Corbett alone has 252 tigers, about 1300 elephants, guldar, nilgai, deer. Due to which the conflict is increasing.

Herds of elephants often enter villages and fields in search of food, increasing their conflict with humans.
The figures of death in tiger attacks of the last 13 years are enough to tell how much conflict is increasing here. Corbett director Rahul says that Corbett and the forest division attached to it are related to each other. Wild animals create a new empire for themselves in a mutual conflict of wildlife. At such times, their chances of confrontation with humans increase. He said that the forest department keeps a close watch on these wildlife.
