There are a total of eight elephants including five baby elephants. Meanwhile, forest staff are camping on the other side to ensure that the elephants do not cross the river and enter mainland. It is said  the place where the elephants are at present is a low lying area. The elephants have to climb to enter the forest which is in an elevated area.
