Udhagamandalam, Feb 8 (PTI): The Forest Department on Monday warned motorists on the Manjoor-Coimbatore highway of movement of a herd of wild elephants.

The 50-km stretch between Manoor-Coimbatore runs through a forest. Therefore, there would be elephants, tigers, leopards and bears moving about, the department said in a press release here.

With 42 hairpin bends, the road is used by a large number of vehicles from Kerala and Coimbatore.

There was a problem for the vehicle-users over the last two days following elephants roaming around in herds, the department said.

In view of this, the motorists should take care while driving down the highway, it said. PTI COR NVM NVG NVG
