Lightning 18 elephants
Eighteen elephants have been killed in a forest area in Nagaon district in the northeastern state of Assam. The tragedy came to light on Thursday morning in the proposed sanctuary forest area of Kondoli. Assam Wildlife Chief Warden MK Yadav told mediapersons that 18 elephants were believed to have died in the lightning strike. Incidents of elephant deaths due to lightning have occurred in West Bengal in the past, but in no case are there any records of more than one or two elephants dying at the same time.

This is the first time this has happened.
Although it is surprising that 18 elephants died at one time due to lightning, forest officials say there are no other causes at present. The death of 21 elephants after being poisoned by smugglers in 2001 was the biggest tragedy in the history of Assam. Once again, 18 elephants were killed in a lightning strike. However, while forest officials believe the lightning was the cause of the elephant deaths, what became of the post-mortem report became a matter of suspense.
