Elephant Attacks Kill Five People In Separate Rampages In Eastern India

Two elephant attacks killed five people in back-to-back
rampages Sunday and Monday, officials said.
A 40-year-old man walked out of his rural West Bengal state
home Monday to find five elephants bearing down on him, said senior forest
official Ajay Das.
One of the elephants tossed Prakash Boyra in the air and
trampled him to death as Bardhaman district villagers screamed and captured the
attack on video.
Boyra’s death in Baghasole followed an even deadlier attack
that killed four people elsewhere in the district Sunday, Das said.
One adult male elephant, an adult female and a calf trampled
and gored the people fatally in Nashigram village before the male was
tranquilized and the two others ran away, according to Das.
The male elephant later died.
Elephant attacks have increased as India’s population of
1.25 billion people flocks into cities and towns in the former jungle habitats
and migration routes of the smaller Asian species of Earth’s largest land
mammal.
