A juvenile elephant was found dead on Attappady Ghat Road on Monday.

Forest officials said the male elephant was about four years old. It was
found at the eighth curve of the ghat road.

It was suspected that the little tusker could have fallen from a height to
its death. A team of forest veterinary surgeons, led by David from
Thrissur, conducted a necropsy.

Forest officials, led by Mannarkkad Divisional Forest Officer M.K. Surjit
and Range Officer N. Subair, supervised the necropsy.

Officials said they could not say for sure the reason for the death of the
jumbo.
