A wild elephant was found dead in a paddy field at Venoli on Tuesday morning.

According to preliminary assumption, the elephant got electrocuted after it tried to uproot a tree. While uprooting, it came in contact with an electric pole and was electrocuted.

Forest department officials have reached the spot.

The locals allege that the electric fencing in the region was not maintained and was broken in many spots.
