2012: Pathanamthitta: The tusker uprooted a few trees, crushed a car parked by the wayside and toppled a mini-lorry. It later quenched its thirst from a bucket kept in front of a shop. The elephant was tethered after a three-hour ordeal.
Dr. Gopakumar said the elephant was not in musth. The elephant had killed five mahouts earlier. It was in the news recently after it crushed to death a mahout near Alappuzha before walking all the way to its ‘home' temple at Nannoor.
