MANGALURU: Two elephant calves, one eight month old and another about 18 month old, were found dead beside the railway tracks deep inside the Shiradi Ghat forest, 10 kms from Yedakumeri Railway station towards Sakleshpur, on Monday morning.
Forest officials suspect that the calves may have been hit by a train, probably goods train, late on Sunday night while they were trying to cross the tracks near a bridge or while straying beside the track.
Hassan Deputy Conservator of Forests Shivaram Babu, under whose jurisdiction the incident occurred, confirmed this incident saying that
officials had visited the spot and had sent the carcasses for post-mortem. "We do not know what time the incident happened. The Sakleshpur Range Forest Officer was informed by the Yedakumeri station manager," he said adding that the station official may have been informed by a loco pilot of a passing train after seeing the dead calves. While one calf, eight month old, was found near the tracks almost on the bridge, the second one was found a little far away.
"We will establish a time frame of when the death occurred and based on that we will be able to find out which train hit those calves," Babu added. An FIR has been lodged and investigations are on, he added. Sources said the site of the incident was near a curve and the loco pilot may have not enough time to apply brakes before sighting the elephant calves to avoid the accident.
