Deogarh, June 23: Reports of yet another injured elephant have surfaced after it was found limping in the reserve forest of Deogarh district.

The forest officials have initiated an operation to treat the ailing elephant in the jungle itself.

According to sources, the female elephant was hit by a pick-up van while it was crossing the National Highway (NH) 49 near Banjari village in the district.

The elephant was then found wandering in the Prabhasuni reserve forest alone as its herd had left her behind after it was injured and could not catch up to the herd’s pace.

A team of rangers led by Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Magar Dhanaji Raoso and a team of doctors from Simlipal had traced down the elephant in the Kansar reserved forest on Wednesday and had started its treatment after tranquilizing it.

Raoso today has informed that the treatment of the injured wild animal is still under way; however, it’s condition is improving now.
