Chase Wild Asian Elephant: Human and wildlife side by side in harmony

Labor Day falls on the first day of May again, the farmer, logger and any other kinds of workers deserve our praise. In a village in Menghai County, Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture, southwest China's Yunnan Province, farmers work in their croplands while a wild Asian elephant roams freely near them. Overcultivation has been pointed out as a destroyer of wildlife habitat, and one of the reasons behind the human-elephant conflicts. But the story in Xishuangbanna presents us with a different relationship between humans and nature, where people and animals share resources side by side in harmony.
