A rampaging male elephant that has killed nine Indian villagers in two years has been sent to ‘rehab’ after being captured with the help of four specially trained beasts.
The 40-year-old animal was spotted grazing close to a river near Attappadi Hills, in Palakkad district of Kerala sparking a tense six-hour attempt to move it to a wildlife centre.
The elephant had wreaked havoc among the 150 tribal dwellers of the Attappadi Reserve Forest, a protected area spread across 100 sq miles, trampling nine to death in the space of two years.
Am I the only person who has a difficult time comprehending as to why a country who holds elephants in HIGH regard would treat these creatures like this. And one wonders why elephants go on rampages.
