Bengaluru: An elephant was eletrocuted on the southern outskirts of Vadderahalli on Friday morning

It has been reported that an illegal wire which was drawn by some miscreants caused the injury to the male elephant.

Forest officials said that a male elephant (45) was found dear near the border of Bannerghatta National Park.

“The area commonly sees elephant movement, and crop loss compensation is the highest here. After grazing in the farmlands nearby on Thursday night, it was returning to the forest when it came in contact with the live wire placed on the ground,” said Varun Kumar, Range Forest Officer (Kaggalipura).

The officer says the owner of the land, Prabhu Kumar, and his family had drawn the wire from an electric pole to keep away wild boars that were causing crop loss. “They have cleared the wires and are absconding. We have registered a case under the Wildlife Act,” said Kumar.
