2018-09-18: Giving impetus to the upgrade move, three ‘kumki’ (trained) elephants were brought to the kraal two days ago after a three-month training at the Theppakadu elephant training camp in Tamil Nadu. With this, the number of ‘kumkis’ in the kraal has gone up to five.

The trio — Surya, 24, from the Muthanga elephant camp; Neelakandan, 22, from the Abhayaranyam elephant training and rescue centre, Kodanad; and Surendran, 17, from the Konni camp — were shifted to the Theppakadu training camp in the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve for training on June 14.
