Elephant Collides With Train, Elephant Dies (Photo)


An adult male elephant was Friday morning mowed down by a speeding train in the West Bengal Darjeeling district. The incident, according to a forest official, comes a day after a jumbo with its head chopped off was found also in the same district.
“The incident happened Friday morning. There is a need to further restrict the speed limit of the trains on the Siliguri-Alipurduar stretch. We are discussing on lowering the speed limit to below 25 km,” said Chief Wildlife Warden, N.C. Bahuguna.
