A wild elephant has been seen seeking food near a tourist spot in the central province of Nghe An’s Con Cuong District.

Ngo Tuyet Linh, the owner of a restaurant near Khe Hem Waterfall in Luc Da Commune, said that he saw the animal search for bananas and bamboo sprouts to eat on Sunday evening.

"After damaging some banana trees, the elephant returned to the forest,” Linh added.

Tran Xuan Cuong, director of Pu Mat National Park, said that the elephant lives in the national park’s area in Luc Da Commune near Khe Kem Waterfall. It has never attacked people and often comes near local houses.

Two elephants were previously seen in the Luc Da area, but one of them died. So, it is believed that this is the only elephant in the area at present.

Pu Mat National Park is home to 13 elephants, focused around Phuc Son, Anh Son, Tung Duong and Con Cuong districts.
