Elephant electrocuted at Rajaji Tiger Reserve

Press Trust of India  |  Haridwar 

An elephant was electrocuted to death after coming into contact with high tension overhead wires at the Chilla range of Rajaji Tiger Reserve here.

A female elephant aged about 35 years was found dead in Andherchaud sector of the Chilla range late last evening, incharge of the range Ghildiyal said.



It seems the elephant uprooted a tree which fell on the high tension overhead wires.

The wires broke due to the weight of the tree and collapsed over the elephant, electrocuting it to death, he said.
