Sivakumar's tusks being cut

Thiruvananthapuram: The tusks of Sivakumar, a tusker at the Sreekanteswaram Mahadeva temple, were cut as they grew exponentially.

The tusks of the elephants are being cut after eight years. The tusks were creating discomfort for the elephant. The elephant was struggling to lie down and get up because of the length of the tusks.

In an incident last month, the elephant lied down at night and was unable to get up in the morning. The fire force arrived and lifted the elephant after a lot of struggle.

Sivakumar’s tusks were cut at Gowreesapattom temple where it had been taken for a procession for the temple festival. The tusks were cut by KR Vinayakan, who is an expert in the field. The right tusk was cut 37 centimetres and the left tusk was cut 43 centimetres. The parts that were cut out were handed over to the forest department.
