Elephant News

It's not that elephants are part of city life. But they're so hard to resist:

Indian forest guards and locals rescue an elephant calf from inside a well in a forest in the village of Mukodula on Sunday. The six-month calf fell into the 4.57 metre (15 feet) well on Saturday after it went astray from its herd. Reuters
There's an article in the same paper about how the 62 elephants at Guruvayur temple in Kerala are going through their annual one-month Ayurvedic treatment of body wraps, tonics and massages, to revitalise them for the coming year. Guruvayur is said to have the largest number of tamed elephants in the world, all of which were donated to the temple by devotees.

Now, back to the ordinary world.
