Elephant dead in drain

Two more wild elephants died in Nagaon and Udalguri districts on Tuesday.

The first incident took place when a three-year-old male calf died after it slipped into a deep drain in Amsoi Tea Estate after getting separated from its herd. A male adult jumbo was electrocuted at Nalapara in the Borangajuli revenue circle in the Indo-Bhutan area. The elephant, which had come out of Bornadi Wildlife Sanctuary on the foothills of Himalayas, died after it came in contact with high-tension wires.
