An old video of a herd of elephants trying to find their way to a forest in Karnataka has gone viral on social media.

Shared on Twitter by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Parveen Kaswan, the video shows the elephants trying to cross a busy road in a village called Hossur as passers-by look on and record the unusual sight on their phones.

One by one, the elephants, four adults and a calf, eventually jump over a compound wall in search of their habitat.

An older elephant is also seen trying to push the baby elephant across the wall.

After the video was shared on Twitter, many netizens took to the comment section to talk about the sad state of things.

Many netizens expressed concern and blamed human encroachment for such incidents with several saying the herd must have been searching for the path used by elephants for many generations.

Karnataka is home to more than 6,000 wild elephants, the highest number for any state in India.

The Karnataka High Court recently directed the state government to constitute a four-member expert committee for a comprehensive study on the deaths of elephants at eight elephant camps in the state.
