Three elephants electrocuted to death in two places

GUWAHATI:In yet another bizarre incident that sends huge shockwaves across the animal lovers, three wild elephants were electrocuted to death in two different incidents in the state on Monday.

The first tragic incident took place in Amguri where two full grown female elephants were electrocuted as a herd of elephants which cane down from the nearby hills in search of food landed at Tiphuk Tea garden in the wee hours.

Local tea garden workers spotted the body in the morning. "Very tragic, pathetic indeed. Both the female elephants perhaps were moving under the high voltage wires," said Vinit Munda, a local tea garden worker.

The second one incident of elephant electrocution took place in Numligarh, the place where over a dozen of wild elephants were electrocuted to death during the last two years.
