A 50-year-old man died after being attacked by a wild elephant near Thally town in Krishnagiri district on Friday, according to a forest official.
The deceased was killed after being attacked by a wild elephant when the man had gone to the field to relieve himself in the morning on Friday in the Alamuru area near Thally town in Krishnagiri district.
After getting information about this incident, the forest department and the Krishnagiri district policemen came to the spot, recovered the body, and sent it to Denkanikottai Government Hospital for an autopsy, an official said.
Further details are awaited.
Human-wildlife conflicts are on the rise in Tamil Nadu. With civilisation ever-expanding and forest cover shrinking, human-wildlife conflicts have become inevitable.
Earlier, Wild gaur (commonly known as bison) menace and threat began to creep into the town limits of Kotagiri in the Nilgiris district.
The residents in the Kotagiri area fear the bison attacks around the residential areas and want the foresters to be active round-the-clock to tackle the man-animal conflict in the backdrop of drying jungles forcing wild animals to stray out.
Speaking about the bison menace, Linda, a resident said, “Although the gaur menace had been confined to forest fringes in the hills so far, now, things have begun to change for the worse as gaurs began to stray into town limits here, spreading panic among the residents.
“For the past few days, the gaur menace has been particularly high in the Donnington area of Kotagiri, Nilgiris,” she added
