ELEPHANT CALF DIES IN BALANGIR
Sunday, 26 May 2013 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Barely a month has elapsed since the mysterious death of an elephant at Keisepali in Agalpur block, the death of a male elephant calf was reported from Budula village in the same block on Friday.
As many as 24 elephants, including calves, were found at Budulae on Friday. To watch the movement of the herd of the pachyderms, people in large numbers gathered at the spot.
A forest official at Loisingha said, “We sent our elephant squad and informed the police about the situation. But the crowd did not allow the elephants to go from there .Apparently, as the elephants remained under hot sun for a long time, an eight-month-old calf died by evening. The young elephant’s body was brought to Loisingha for postmortem and buried later.”
