Rajeswari reportedly came to Salem in 1981, on an exchange program from Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary when she was a 5-year-old calf. She has been suffering from TB for the past 10 years and is currently being treated by a team of vets supervised by Madras Veterinary College and Namakkal Medical College professors.
2018-04-17: After over a month of pain and illness and a lifetime of deformity, euthanasia will now come to the aid of Rajeswari, Arulmigu Sugavaneswarar Temple’s resident elephant. The Madras High Court, hearing a petition by an animal lover on Monday, granted permission for mercy killing of the jumbo, after it developed bed sores all over its body during the course of the illness that had rendered her immobile.
