One gored, one trampled 

MYSORE - A 40 - year old Mahout Bola was gored to death by nine-year-old elephant 'Kyata' in Biligiriranganatha Swamy Sanctury in Chamarajanagar district. Bola had been to feed jaggery to the elephant when it reportedly attacked him and threw him on the ditch. This killed Bola on the spot on Saturday morning. While people gathered in hundreds, the still angry elephant Kyata did not allow any one near Bola's body, displaying angry mannerisms.

In another incident in Hunasehalla village of HD Kote taluk in Mysore district, Forest Watcher Muddumallaiah was trampled to death by a herd of elephants. Muddumallaiah, along with his officers, had gone to chase the elephants into the forests.
