Comments / pictures


At almost 12 Feet in height, Nanjunda is a huge elephant. He was captured in Hassan a month before this photograph was taken, after two people who came into contact with him died while he was raiding some agricultural fields for food. His frequent visits to the fields endangered the lives of many people around the area. The forest department decided to tranquillise him and handed him over to the mahouts at the Dubare Elephant Camp.
