Gundlupet (Chamarajanagar): The dead body of an elephant calf was found in the Kekkanahalli forest, located within the Bandipur sanctuary of Gundlupet taluk.

It is suspected that the one-year-old male elephant calf may have died two days ago after supposedly being separated from its mother and failing to procure sustenance in a timely manner. The exact cause of death, however, remains unknown.

Forest guards who made the discovery informed their superiors. The Assistant Conservator of Forests (ACF)  Naveen Kumar-led team conducted an immediate investigation. Accompanied by Veterinary Officer Dr. Mohan Kumar, the team performed a postmortem examination of the elephant’s remains.

According to Dr. Mohan Kumar, samples of the elephant’s organs and viscera have been dispatched to the Forensic Laboratory for further analysis. The definitive cause of death can only be determined upon receipt of the laboratory report, he added.
