POLLACHI: The wild animal world knows no niceties. A female elephant who ‘refused’ to mate was killed by her male counterpart late on Friday night at Pollachi forest range in the Anamalai Tiger Reserve (ATR).

According to Pollachi FRO Kasilingam, a team of Forest officials during routine patrolling on Saturday noticed a female elephant lying dead near Kovil Kaadu beat, the elephant's stomach portion was opened and its intestine lying outside.
On receiving information, Field director Ganesan, DFO Subiah along with FRO Kasilingam and veterinary doctor rushed to the spot.

 

After doing the post-mortem, the veterinary doctor said this would have happened in a conflict between a male and the female, after the latter apparently refused to mate, possibly forcing the angry tusker to stab the female with his tusks.
