Two men arrested for killing elephant

Two men who allegedly poisoned a domesticated elephant before hacking

off its valuable tusks have been arrested, police said March 26. The

62-year-old bull elephant was found dead in March last year chained to

a tree fewer than 100 meters from its owner's house in Ratanakkiri

province. Police suspect it had been fed jack fruit doused with rat

poison. The elephant's meter-long tusks, were missing. Men Rattana, 42,

and Klem Sam Oeun, 27, were detained earlier for the destruction of

property, said provincial deputy police chief Hor Ang. "They could face

up to seven years in jail if convicted because the elephant is

considered to be a rare animal and it is considered state property,"

said. (AFP)
