The forest department’s attempt to take an elephant for training in Tamil Nadu was blocked due to the disagreement of the natives. The authorities were blocked by hundreds of people when they reached there at 2 AM. The attempts of police to execute the actions of the department was also futile. The elephant named Neelakandan from the Kodanad elephant training centre was planned to be taken to Muthumala camp for a special training.
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.
