Tribal man killed in bison attack in Ernakulam

Thomas was working in the grove at the time of the assault. It is believed that it was the same bison that attacked both individuals. The victims suffered severe injuries, particularly to their legs. A group of angry natives are staging a protest against forest officials.

The animal fled the location following the attack, said natives.

In March this year, a bison was spotted at Edakkunnam in Kanjirappally, near here. The bison that posed a threat in the region fell into a well one night. The next morning, it was rescued from the well using an earth mover under the forest department's supervision. As soon as the bison was rescued, it escaped from the spot.
