Wild elephant kills Indian tourist in Nepal

KATHMANDU: A wild elephant killed an Indian tourist in Nepal’s largest national park on Tuesday in the second deadly attack in recent months.

The 22-year-old woman was returning on foot with her parents from a jungle safari in Chitwan National Park when the elephant charged at the group.

“She was immediately taken to a hospital but died while under treatment,” Chitwan’s police chief Deepak Thapa told AFP.

“Her parents were not hurt.”

Last month a woman was trampled to death and two others were injured when wild elephants rampaged through a village in the southern district of Bardia.

There are about 300 elephants in Nepal, mostly domesticated. They are used to take tourists on jungle rides and for anti-poaching patrols in the country’s national parks.
