Comments / pictures


Rohini, a captive elephant that was attached to the Anamalai Tiger Reserve (ATR) following a court intervention in 2018, is the new inmate of the Elephant Rehabilitation and Rescue Centre (ERRC), Tiruchi. A truck carrying the elephant, aged around 25, left the Kozhikamuthy elephant camp of ATR late on Saturday after the Chief Wildlife Warden issued instructions for its shifting.

According to officials with the Forest Department, the elephant could not get accustomed to the weather and the routines at Kozhikamuthy camp as it was in the custody of a private person from Virudhunagar district for several years before being handed over to the ATR authorities in December 2018. It was also not trained to forage in the wild unlike the other camp elephants at Kozhikamuthy.
