Including on Twitter, some have been posting this video titled “what is the fate of wildlife? if vehicles go like this, and that the route should be closed from 6pm to 6pm.”

Fact Check:

The video that went viral was not taken on Sathyamangalam Dhimbam hill station. While searching for the video, we find a video captioned as Nandi Hills area on May 31, 2020, on a Malayalam YouTube channel.

Nandi Hills is located at a distance of 61 km from Bangalore in Karnataka. The video was taken in the early hours of the morning. A video of aerial footage taken in the Nandi Hills area during the day has been released in 2018.

The video, taken in the Nandi Hills area of ​​Karnataka, was incorrectly spreading as allegedly taken in Wayanad, Kerala and in Satyamangalam, Tamil Nadu.

Earlier, a photo of a road in Australia was falsely reported as Satyamangalam area on social media.


In our search, the viral video which claimed to be taken at Sathyamangalam Dhimbam Hill Trail at night view was really taken in the Nandi Hills area of ​​Karnataka. This video is not currently taken. The video has been featured on YouTube channels since May 2020.
