    Regarding the description of the elephant in the photo, it is not translocation. It is one of the four dead elephants that were poisoned and is being lifted with the help of a crane for its last rites.

    The tragedy took place recently near Nanjangud

    I am between the horns of dilemma. Whom should I feel sorry for? The leopard llooks quite dead to me, far from attacking the zoo official. The pachyderm suspended in the mid air – is he alive or dead as “ragpicker” says? Nevertheless, the photos are a good catch! Better topic than usual secularism terrorism talk.

    Hope the official is fine.

  6. Mysore Peshva Says:

    It was not the leopard attacking humans in that incident, but vice versa.

    Congratulations to all winners.
