An elephant in musth which killed three men, including its mahout, in Indaw, Kachin State, was tranquilized and captured yesterday.
The male elephant, named “Aung Bu”, 49, was found in a forest with a female elephant and tranquilized six days after it created terror in the area. The operation, which involved three elephants, the authorities, and one veterinarian, ended yesterday evening.
The elephant had killed three persons and injured another in separate incidents.
The injured person has been taken to the Myitkyina hospital.— Win Naing (Kachin Land) (Translated by Kyaw Zin Lin)
