8-yr-old tusker falls into well in TN, rescued
Krishnagiri: An eight-year-old male elephant, which fell into a well in the reserve forest along the Tamil Nadu-Karnataka border on Friday night, was rescued after four hours of struggle on Saturday. According to forest officers, the well is not more than 30 feet deep and farmers of Uppupallam village near Hosur use water from it for irrigation.
“The tusker might have fallen due to lack of visibility. Villagers alerted us on Saturday. We dug around the well and laid a slope to make a path to rescue the elephant,” said an officer.
