Electric fences in and around animal sanctuaries are a norm to protect animals from venturing into out-of-bounds areas. But fences are not enough when the tusker decides to have its way.
In the video, a herd of elephants finds an electric fence obstructing the way. Elephants are known to follow a familiar track and remember the path even after many years.
The tusker in the video can be seen pushing the fence a couple of times and then carefully crosses the fence wires. Others follow the tusker.
Tusker leads the charge & breaks the electric fence for the team to migrate...— Susanta Nanda IFS (@susantananda3) August 2, 2021

Well, we humans erect fences, but the forest is home to these animals. They have the final say, at least in some cases. No one messes with elephant power.
