Elephants kill 5 in attacks in eastern India
« on: March 22, 2016, 06:59:08 AM »

Elephants have killed five people in two separate attacks in eastern India. One of the animals died after being tranquilised.

Senior forest official Ajay Das said one man was killed on Monday morning after he walked out of his home in a village in the Burdwan district of West Bengal state. The man encountered five elephants and he was tossed in the air and trampled by one of them.

In a separate encounter in another part of the district, four people were killed on Sunday when three elephants attacked them.

Das said one elephant in that group was tranquilised and later died. An adult female and a calf ran away.

As rapid urbanisation cuts into India's forests, animals and humans have come into increasing conflict.
