Over the last two weeks it has been surviving with the support of the public as its food and medical expenses run to around Rs 2,000 a day,” mahout A Asan Mydeen told TOI. Mydeen, 48, of Pottal Pudur near Alwarkurichi in Tirunelveli district, who has been a mahout since the age of eight, claimed that Sundari is 85 years old.

But the veterinarian with the animal husbandry department who is treating it, said the female elephant is 68-years-old. “Eight-years-ago Beer Mohammed of Tenkasi in Tirunelveli district, bought Sundari from Neendoor in Kerala,” he said.
