A wild elephant trampled a man to death in Mysore, India, Wednesday, creating panic in the city.
Four elephants bore through the city around 6 a.m., straying from the town of Tirumakudalu Narsipura, about 35 kilometers (21 miles) from Mysore, according to The Times of India. One elephant was seen trampling to death a 55-year-old security guard at a bank ATM. The elephant also attacked a cow in the market and a moving bus in the street.
â€śThe forest guards and officials from the Mysore zoo were alerted,â€ť State Higher Education Minister S.A. Ramdas told the Times. â€śThey rushed to the spot to control the jumbos by tranquilizing them.â€ť
Two of the more destructive elephants were tranquilized, the Times reported, citing local officials. One barged into a womenâ€™s college compound and roamed the grounds while the other wreaked havoc in a residential area.
As a precaution, schools and colleges were closed for the day and extra police deployed.
The CNN interviewer is an idiot. "We're used to seeing elephants at the circus," she says. Circus elephants are among the most abused animals out there. They are capable of extreme violence, which occasionally happens (and I say good for them, although they end up being shot or sent to an even worse situation than the circus). They are beaten ion submission, chained, kept in trucks and train cars for most of their working lives. What an ignorant example!
Depends on the elephant and trainer, but actually I bet every elephant you have actually seen in the flash was at a zoo or circus. Why did you say she was wrong to say that, when it's true? Truer than your rant, anyway.
Hit a nerve, "Elephant Trainer"? You are wrong, of course. But then, you are an animal abuser, so what can anyone expect?
You all just hate elephants. Society is against us all the way, and you discriminate against us at every turn. I get turned down for summer jobs just because I have a howdah on my back; is that my fault?
