KASARAGOD:  A 40-year-old man who belongs to the Scheduled Tribes at Kottankuzhi, near Karadka, has been trampled to death by a wild elephant.

The body of Kumaran, with marks of elephant attack on him while moving in the reserve forest area, was recovered on Thursday, Nithin Joy, sub-inspector of Adhur police station, said.

The body of the man, who had been missing since September 3, was subjected to a detailed post-mortem examination at the Pariyaram medical college hospital where the experts confirmed that he was killed in wild elephant attack, he said.

Even though the areas bordering the forests are protected with solar fencing, the residents often complain of persistent threat to their life, property, and standing crops from wild animals that stray into the farm lands in search of fodder and water.

The residents have been seeking additional allocation to the Forest Department to set up solar fencing on the remaining stretch to seal possible intrusion of wild animals into their land.
