Wild elephant kills man in Nepal

  A wild elephant in Nepal killed a 35-year-old man who attempted to chase it away, Police said on Wednesday.

The man was among a group of villagers who tried to chase away a herd of four wild elephants in the village of Bhadrapur in the country’s south-east, said senior police officer Bishnu KC.

He said the area was part of a corridor used by wild elephants that ventured into human settlements during the harvest season between October and November.

Conflicts between wild animals and humans have increased in recent years in southern Nepal’s buffer zones, areas which lied between forests and human settlements.

In July, a 58-year-old man was mauled to death by a wild elephant near a wildlife reserve in south-east Nepal.
