Elephant set ablaze by villagers in Masinagudi dies

In a yet another barbaric incident, a 40 year old elephant succumbed to death after being set afire on its ears by the villagers in their attempt to chase it away. The horrifying incident of animal cruelty took place in the Masinagudi village in Tamil Nadu.

The wild elephant that strayed from the forest was strolling through the village when the people started throwing objects at it to chase it back into forest. The animal died after the burning piece of tyre thrown at it got stuck on its ears causing serious burns on its body. The elephant was found in the village locality too injured to get back into the forest.

Though the attack took place several months ago, it was only five days that the weak and injured animal bleeding from its wounds caught the attention of forest guards. The elephant died while it was being transported for further medical treatment after being tranquilized.

It was only after the autopsy that the forest officials realized the atrocity done to the animal by the villagers. There were serious burns on its ears and backside which led to its death. While the investigation was going on, a video of the elephant being tortured and set ablaze has become viral on the internet.

The police has arrested three men allegedly responsible for setting the elephant on fire.
