Pachyderm killed brutally

By Correspondent

TURA, June 9 � A male elephant that was shot and injured by poachers died of its wounds on Friday.

The wounded pachyderm had been unable to move and was lying just across Garo Hills border inside Bangladesh when miscreants reportedly cut off its trunk and tail and also removed its tusk.

The dead elephant was found 300 meters inside Bangladesh at a place called Jatrakona, across South Garo Hills.

Poachers had attacked it and the elephant suffered bullet injuries on its two hind legs, right ear and forehead and was unable to move. It was crying out in pain and there was little animal activists from India could do since the pachyderm was across the border.

The animal stopped eating on Thursday. The Bangladesh Border Guards (BBG) blamed Indian poachers of attacking the animal which forced it to stray into their area while the BSF has blamed poachers from that country of attacking the animal.

Suspected poachers attacked the injured animal and took off with its tusk after cutting the trunk and tail and leaving the animal to bleed to death.
