The Largest Land Animal is also Karnataka’s state Animal. Its elegant and beautiful tusks as seen here are the reason they are being killed. Almost every month news reaches us of Elephants hunted down and killed by poachers.
Sometimes Elephants are killed trying to find food when farmers kill/electrocute them. The dwindling forest cover is to be blamed for this.
