An elephant responsible for killing 17 people was found to have human flesh in its stomach.
An increase in aggressiveness from animals in India is becoming a significant concern, in another part of the country reports suggest that tigers were responsible for the deaths of 14 people from a single village last year. The problem is thought to be due at least in part to human encroachment on their territories.
After a rogue elephant killed 17 people in India, locals knew it had to be stopped. Once the animal was killed, DNA tests on the contents of its stomach revealed something even more terrifying: the elephant had consumed human flesh.
