A 12-year-old female elephant was found dead on Wednesday in a forest in Tamil Nadu’s Krishnagiri district.

This incident took place on a day when temple elephants came to Coimbatore and the Nilgiris for a rejuvenation camp.

Authorities have conducted a post-mortem and have sent the samples for analysis.

“We suspect the adolescent elephant might have been a victim of violent mating,” said Mr Rajendran, District Forest Officer.
