Angul, Oct 29:

The carcass of a female elephant was found at Tabada village of Durgapur block in Angul district this morning.

Forest officials, who visited the spot, found several injury marks in the trunk and other parts of the body. The elephant’s age, they said, was around 10 to 12 years.

Going by the circumstantial evidence and nature of injuries forest officials suspect the elephant might have been electrocuted after its trunk came in contact with a live wire.
