2018-04-04: Coimbatore: The forest department on Tuesday brought kumki elephants (trained) John, 27, and Cheran, 32, from Theppakadu Elephant Camp in the Nilgiris to the Chadivayal Elephant Camp here to prevent man-animal conflict

2019-07-04: kumkis Cheran (32) and John (27) of Chadivayal camp, who will be sent to Theppakkadu in Mudumalai Tiger Reserve. Cheran and John were shifted from Theppakkadu to Chadivayal in April last year. Forest Department officials said the decision to shift kumkis Cheran and John to the parent camp was taken after they were not found fit to be engaged in operations, mainly driving out wild elephants that strayed into human habitations.
