The elephant census that took place last week in the Dudhwa Tiger Reserve has recorded the presence of 11 tuskers in the area. While the figure is much less than the 37 elephant sightings reported a week ago by the forest department,authorities claim the reduced number could be owing to the elephants moving to Nepal.

“There have been 11 elephant sightings in two different herds in the Dudhwa range — a pack of nine elephants in one herd and two in another,” said Sanjay Pathak,deputy director,Dudhwa Tiger Reserve.
