PALAKKAD DEC. 4. A wild elephant was electrocuted at Thekkamukkiyur in Sholayur panchayat of Attappady today after it came into contact with an electric fencing put up by a farmer. Reports from Attappady said the cow elephant may have died due to the high voltage of current passed through the electric fencing directly from the main line.

A postmortem examination of the elephant was done by the veterinary doctor of Agali Veterinary hospital.
