Tamil Nadu Forest Ranger Bids ‘tearful Goodbye’ As He Mourns Loss Of Elephant


This is the heart-wrenching moment a forest ranger says farewell to the elephant he cared for being taken away for the last time. The majestic creature suffered injuries on its ear and back before the forester tried to nurse it back to health. Sadly, the injuries proved fatal, despite the best efforts of workers at the Sadivayal Elephant Camp in Mudumalai Tiger Reserve, Tamil Nadu, southern India. Video footage shows the ranger in floods of tears, gently stroking the elephant’s trunk before it is taken away in a truck.

Referring to the fruit he used to feed the animal, he says: ‘To whom will I give hereafter?’ Sharing the video on Twitter, Indian Forest Service officer Ramesh Pandey said: ‘It’s really moving to see this tearful bid adieu to an elephant by his companion forester.’ It struck a chord with many users, one of whom said: ‘Even if you try your best you can never express emotions in words. This was pretty emotional.
