Elephant calf lands in watery grave at Karwar

Karwar: An elephant calf was found dead in a water body on Friday morning at Gunjavathi Murukanakatte of Mundagoda taluk.

It is said that the young elephant may have been venturing out of the wilds into a field when it may have accidentally walked into water bodies that was in the middle of the field. Since water was filled in the field, the calf could not identify the deep water body, ultimately drowning in it.

The forest officials who visited the spot say that the elephant must be about three-year-old.
