The death of a two-year-old elephant in Wayanad forest in Kerala is suspected to be due to herpes, a deadly infectious disease.
Kerala has about 7,000 wild elephants and 100 tigers as per the latest survey on the animal population in the forests, State Forest Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan said here today.
Carcasses of four elephants were found in Gavi forests in the Ranni Division of Pathanamthitta district on Friday, forest department sources said.
