Hassan: A forest watcher was trampled to death by a tusker on Wednesday in Bhadra Tiger Reserve in Chikkamagaluru. The same tusker killed a woman in Belur taluk about a month ago.

The deceased is identified as Anne Gowda (55).

It is gathered that the rogue elephant was sighted in the Seegegudda forest area around 3 am on Wednesday and forest personnel was trying to drive it away from the area. Around 8 am, forest personnel put off the operation planning to resume it at 3 pm.

As Anne Gowda and his colleagues were following the footmarks of the elephant, it arrived at the spot from nowhere and attacked the forest team. While others managed an escape, Anne Gowda could not and was trampled to death by the male elephant.
