Wild elephants kill 17 in India

Monday 14th January 2002

Wild elephants have killed 17 people in central India.

Chattisgarh state government officials are asking experts to try to tame and catch the animals.

Animal rights groups say development projects are driving the animals out of their native forests.

The animals are from jungles in the neighbouring state of Jharkhand, Sify News reports.

Anoop Srivastava, divisional forest officer for Surguja district, believes the elephants are looking for food.

Villages in Surguja, Jashpur and Raigarh districts of Chattisgarh have been evacuated because of the threat.

The deaths have all occurred in the last week.
