Jumbo In trouble

it is really shocking guys.A horrendous piece of news........seven elephants mowed down by a goods carriage train in Jalpaiguri district of West Bengal.I mean i am just totally devastated by this incident.And above all, the railways are not ready to take the responsibility for this.Our one of the largest fauna resource whom the government christens with lucky mascots bore the horrible brunt of one of the largest killings in one single incident of train accident.The accident claimed the lives of two adult females,two young elephants,one adult tusker and one calf,total seven casualties.The repoert on the accident further tells about other shocking reveletions that how on seeing five of the members of clan being hauled and kicked by the giant machine, a female charged the train in retaliation only to be hauled brutally, as the driver increased the speed in order to escape the enraged animal.This is so inhuman.The incident brought tears in my eyes.Equally shocked are all who came to know today in newspapers and yesterday on tv .
Some thing has to be done for this.Mere compensation wont halt the dangers prevailing for these calm ,innocent,beautiful and lovable animals on the railway tracks scattered all across the tea gardens in the state,posing such greiving threats.
The caracass lying on the tracks itself shows the brutality of the accident.
Tigers are fighting for their existence,now elephants...........
For how long these speechless innocent animals have to pay for such human errors...............
