KALPETTA: A wild elephant died of electrocution in Ammani in Panamaram. The deceased elephant, estimated to be 12 years old, was found in a coffee plantation belonging to Paravayal Jayaraj. A coconut tree had pushed a coconut tree over a power line and might have gotten in contact with electricity after this. After informing the forest department, the elephant's body was moved to another place using a crane and a post-mortem was conducted. The area is frequently affected by wildlife. There were 5 elephants in the herd. These elephants were also seen by local residents on Sunday morning. Months ago, wild herds created terror in Ammani. A fencing was erected at the places from Dasanakkara to Chekkatta has been completely destroyed. Railway fencing was requested to be constructed in this area but it has not been implemented. As all the surrounding areas are forest, the locals demand that a scientific defense system should be prepared here.

South Wayanad DFO Shajnakarim, Forest Range Officer Samad and others reached the spot.
