The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

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.
