Elephant kills

forest guard

A 55-year old woman forest guard, working in Kurumbapatti Zoological Park here, was stomped to death when a lone captive elephant ran amok on Thursday.

Forest sources told The Hindu that the elephant on the routine morning stroll with mahouts, suddenly became furious and caught hold of D. Padmini sweeping the park entrance. Before the mahouts could react, the elephant stomped her with its hind legs. She died instantly. — Special Correspondent
