Amok elephant catchup 

One woman was killed and 32 others were injured when an elephant ran amok after the Thalagolla perahera in Ragama.

A female elephant was killed by a tusker on Monday night (July 28) in the Hatipota forest of Buxa Tiger Reserve in north Bengal. Two male elephants from the herd of wild elephants seen in the neighbourhood had been pursuing the female. A fight broke out between the males during the night while the female stood by watching. As one of the male elephants tried to walk away with his mate, the second elephant charged and gored the female with his tusk. The female died on the spot.

RAIPUR: A seven-year-old girl was trampled to death by a wild tusker in a forested stretch in Chhattisgarh, taking to eight the number of people killed by rogue elephants since June.

A 17-year-old girl from Kfar Saba was moderately to seriously injured early Friday after being trampled upon by an elephant at the Ramat Gan Safari.

The girl broke into the zoo at dawn along with a 20-year-old man from Petah Tikva.

FOR THE fourth time in a week a man was trampled to death by an elephant near the Buxa Tiger Reserve in north Bengal.
