Thank you Lone....

Noted with extreme sorrow!

From your news and trying to stop my eyes from tearing!

"Chennai: A 10-year-old elephant died trying to save her calf which was caught in an electric fence in Tamil Nadu's Vellore district this morning. Both mother and child were electrocuted.

The Assistant Conservator of Forests, Mohammad Raffi in Vellore said, "High voltage electricity on an illegal electric fence put up by a private farm is responsible for this. This technically comes under the Krishnagiri Forest Division. We have informed our colleagues there. They will investigate."

No arrests have been made yet. Investigators are looking for the man who had taken the land on lease."

No arrests will be made either Lone IMHO!
