Wild Elephant Killed by Train Near Guwahati; Concerns Rise Over Wildlife Safety

A wild elephant was tragically killed after being struck by a train at Jagiroad, on the outskirts of Guwahati city, on Tuesday night. The tusker was hit while attempting to cross the rail tracks in the Tegheria region, likely having ventured out of the forest in search of food.

Local police and forest officials responded to the scene to assess the situation. They noted that herds of elephants frequently pass through the area, highlighting ongoing wildlife-human interaction challenges.

In a related incident last month, another wild elephant was found dead under mysterious circumstances at a tea estate in Assam’s Tinsukia district. The cause of death remains unknown, although it is suspected the elephant entered the village in search of food.

These incidents underscore the pressing need for measures to protect wildlife and prevent such tragic collisions with trains.
