Two Elephants Are Killed – level 2
After passing through a tea plantation in Darjeeling, India, two elephants touched a wire which electrocuted and killed them. People came to the elephants and put flowers on them to show respect. The elephants died from hitting the high-voltage wire by accident. They were part of a herd of 30.
As the human population grows, the animal’s natural habitat gets smaller. Animals often come into contact with people and farming land in India.
