2014-07-24: Vijaya, the cow-elephant camping at the Dubare Elephant Camp of the Forest Department near here has given birth to a female calf recently. Vijaya, aged 56 years, has so far given birth to 12 calves

2017-05-06: A young male elephant in Kodagu’s Dubare camp that killed two mahouts in quick succession was found to be allergic to alcohol. And this, forest department sources say, may have provoked seven-year-old Karthik to trample the two mahouts, who were in an inebriated state. While one mahout Annu was killed on April 17, the other trainer Mani was killed on Thursday. [...] Karthik is the offspring of Vijaya (40), who was captured in Kattepura reserve forest in 1998. Vijaya, a Dasara elephant, was known to be gentle.
