Munnar: Within days after rogue, rice-loving tusker ‘Arikomban’ was translocated from Chinnakanal to Periyar Tiger Reserve, a herd of wild elephants attacked a deserted shed in the region. The attack took place on Monday morning.

As per reports, the wild jumbos arrived at the region around 5 am and destroyed the shed completely. According to the locals, two big elephants and two calves were behind the attack.

Earlier, Chinnakanal residents had blamed Arikomban for such incidents. However, ever since the tusker was translocated, a herd of wild jumbos have been camping near the Cement Palam region.

“A herd of 12 elephants were spotted in the area the other day. Those elephants looked angry,” locals said.
