Tragic photos showing an elephant lying dead on the ground have popped up on the internet. The poor animal was trying to get ripe jackfruit from higher branches when right foot got stuck in the tree.
This was in the Sholayar forest range. Wildlife activist Rajeev N Kurup said: ‘The accident happened when the wild elephant tried to acquire jackfruit from the higher branches of the tree.
‘It slipped and got its feet entangled in the trunk and subsequently died.’
