Thursday 09 June 2011
Two wild elephants have killed a man and injured others on a rampage in southern India.
New Delhi Television news channel aired footage yesterday showing the body of a man at the feet of one of the animals in the city of Mysore in Karnataka state. One elephant also kicked a cow.
Press Trust of India later reported one elephant was trapped inside a farm and the other was tranquilised. It said several people were injured but no details were available.
Hundreds of people die in India annually when wild animals wander into cities as their habitats shrink and they have to range farther for food. Its parks face massive encroachment from people living nearby.
