Wild elephant electrocuted at Dimoria

By Ann service

JORABAT, May 7 - An adult wild elephant died after coming into contact with an 11-kv power line on the Motapahar hilltop in Nalgedra village under the Sonapur forest range office on the outskirts of Guwahati city.

An eyewitness who went inside the forest to collect firewood said he heard the sound of electrocution when one of the three elephants came into contact with the live cable this afternoon.

The power line comes under the Jagiroad subdivision.

The elephant first came into contact with the wire and managed to move away. But, unfortunately, the pachyderm again touched the line a few metres away, leading to its death.

The complete stretch of electricity supply wire is strung too low in the particular forest area, he pointed out.

The other two jumbos are now seen staying close to the carcass.

Forester Debobrath Sharma said that the power line, hanging barely five feet above the ground, touched the head of the tusker, killing it on the spot. A team of doctors will conduct post-mortem, after which the carcass will be buried on the hilltop, he added.
