2010-10-03: Vikrama from Dubare camp will be taking part in Dasara for 10th time.

A rogue elephant attacked a team of two tamed elephants during a chase in an estate at Maragodu on Sunday, creating tension for sometime.

Harsha and Vikram had been engaged by the forest department to chase a Herd of elephants rampaging coffee estates around Maragodu. A team of about forty forest staff and public set out to chase the Herd in the morning. The Herd was successfully pushed to a high position of a peak from where they had to be be led in the direction of Dubare elephant camp. After treading difficult terrains for kilometers the Herd misled the chasing team, escaped in the thick jungle and came down to the original point where it had been camping since days.

The team decided to return as it was nearing dark and it started raining. However, they were shocked as a rogue elephant from the Herd charged at them. The people ran helter skelter. Then the elephant charged at Harsha and Vikram. Harsha, known as the nation's best fighter, who can handle any kind of wild elephant with ease, along with its companion Vikram pulled the iron chain from its back and began to attack the wild elephant. Crackers and hoax guns were fired and the wild elephant rushed back to its Herd.
