Enter the elephant borg 

Zacharias Mathew, 59, may have dropped out of school after the sixth grade, but that has not stopped him from inventing and patenting products that range from mid-hinged poles to a Cashew nut remover. He has many patents in the field of machine designing to his credit, and his latest patent is a device that can supposedly calm a raging elephant without causing the animal any harm.

By means of a small device fixed to one of the legs of the elephant with an elastic belt attached to the other leg, Mathew claims that one can calm a violent elephant. The moment the animal turns wild, the mahout - with the help of a remote - can lock the elephant's legs from a distance of about 25 metrs.
