A wild ride: Sabah has been grappling with a lot of human-elephant conflict cases in the east coast.

KOTA KINABALU: The frequent conflict between man and beast has stretched wildlife rangers so thin so that they are calling on plantation owners and farmers to take their own initiatives to protect their crops from elephants without hurting the animals.
