HASSAN: Futile exercises have been made by the Forest officials to drive away the herd of 13 wild elephants which have  stationed on the outskirts of  Anegolale  village  in  Sakleshpur taluk since three days.
The elephants have so far destroyed  standing crops in over 30 acres, including paddy, ginger and banana. The elephants did not move from the coffee estates despite the farmers bursting crackers.  It may be recalled that  the Forest officials  were locked up in a class room in the  village by the irate villagers when they visited the village to take the stock of situation on Saturday.
