Three elephants electrocuted in Dhenkanal




 Three elephants, including a calf, were apparently electrocuted in Borapada jungle under Kapilas Forest Range near here, forest officials said today.

     The carcasses of three elephants – two adult females and one calf – were found decomposed and forest officials suspected that they might have died two to three days ago. Their carcasses were found near a high voltage electric wire, they said.

     "I have asked the electricity department to probe whether the jumbos died coming in touch with electric wire," said Energy Minister Prafulla Kumar Mallick.
