Elephants check into Tea Garden Cottage

Wild Elephants at Acres Wild Cheesemaking Farm, Coonoor, near Ooty, India

A late check-in at Tea Garden Cottage.

A group of elephants decided to check out our Tea Garden cottage this evening after a night of stomping around our farmhouse.   They broke our fence all around the pond which itself was looking muddy.  I have a feeling they may even have swum in it.  Then they left a pile of dung at our door steps to let us know they were there.   Below they are seen checking out some tasty grass in the middle of our lower pond while Tina and Shumita ( a friend from Delhi) watch them.   No they are not as close to the elephants as it seems in the photo because of the tele lens.

Who moved my Salad?

As I type this they are somewhere around outside.  Wonder what they are going to pull down tonight.

Wow, that looks scary! Seems like they are getting more and more comfortable with your property and that’s usually not a good thing.

Yes Arvind, I am concerned now too. As after 5 years of regular visits it seems to be a fixed trend. Otherwise exciting but they really do cause a lot of damage – not to forget the human safety factor too.
