Villagers stand on a railway track to watch a herd of wild elephant grazing in a forested area nearby at Panbari village, on the outskirts of Guwahati. More then 30 wild elephants and their calves came out from nearby Amchang wildlife sanctuary and crossed a railway track in search of food in Panbari village Monday night. Wildlife activists say human encroachment in the forests of northeast India have forced elephants out of their natural habitats, triggering conflicts with locals.
