However, an aged elephant Sumathi would not take part in the camp this year also, owing to ill health. Already, veterinary doctors checked the mammoth animal and declared that it was not fit for travel. Now, Sumathi was taking rest at Karunai Illam, owned by the temple administration. Already, temple administration had brought elephant trainers from Kerala to treat and train the ill elephant. After treatment, its weight had been reduced drastically.
Sumathi, a 39-year-old elephant of Dhandayuthapaniswamy Temple, died at Palani on Wednesday night. The pachyderm, which was ailing due to a bacterial attack since October 31, had lost movement of both its hind legs and was treated by a team of veterinary doctors drawn from Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
