Elephant found dead near Hunsur

The body of the elephant was found in a small canal in the agriculture land belonging to Ravi Kumar. The elephant entered Ravikumar’s field on Monday night to feed on maize and destroyed the crop.

It is suspected that the male elephant, which is about 30 years old, could have been killed after coming in contact with the electrical fencing erected illegally to protect the field from the onslaught of wild animals. Senior forest officer and Director of Project Elephant Ajay Mishra, Deputy Conservator of Forests Keshav and other officers visited the spot. Investigation is on.
