Madikeri: A mahout of Dubare Elephant Camp in Kushalnagar suffered serious injuries after a tamed elephant attacked him, on Sunday, January 13.

Karthik drank the water given by Naveen and when Naveen was leaving the spot, Karthik attacked him with his tusks and seriously injured him. The commotion alerted other mahouts who rushed to the spot and reined in Karthik, informed sources
