Farmers losing crops to elephant raids may benefit from a study that found that the pachyderms left the area when they heard audio of tigers.

LA Zoo helps a program which teaches farmers to plant VERY spicy peppers to deter elephants. ANYTHING which helps offset their habitat loss will help save elephants!

If it helps save the live's of the Elephants and it does not harm the Tigers and people can keep their crops then its okay with me.

Terrific idea, works for the farmers ,the elephants, and the tiger contributed with it's roar, and not human or beast gets killed. Have heard of farmers using burros to keep coyotes away from their cattle, their bray is so loud and they have the devil of a kick.
Thank you for sharing Cher.
