2023-11-01: In a tragic incident, an elephant named Vinayaka, also known as Akkiraja, residing at the Rampura elephant camp in the Bandipur tiger reserve, passed away on Tuesday.
Vinayaka, originally captured in the forest areas of Coimbatore in 2021, had later been relocated to the Madumalai Tiger Reserve. The elephant had become a source of concern for the residents of Yelachetti village due to its aggressive behavior. It had attacked houses in the Kundukere area of the Bandipur tiger reserve, prompting local families, who had been living there for several years, to appeal for the capture of the wild elephant.
Their pleas resulted in a capture operation led by the Forest Department in June this year, relocating the elephant to the Rampura elephant camp, where it was renamed "Karna".
