Wild elephant branded 'bin Laden' after killing five people in 72 hours caught in northeast India
A killer elephant branded 'Osama bin Laden' for a vicious rampage it made through northeast India leaving five dead, was caught by forest
officials on November 11.
The rogue elephant was cornered in the Rongjuli forest area in Assam state's Goalpara district, with footage showing how a herd of tame elephants helped to subdue it before it was tranquilised.
Assam forest department officials had launched the operation along with the Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) of the area to save local people from the menace, that had destroyed property, farmland and killed or injured many people.
It is believed the elephant "Osama bin Laden" will be transported to a remote location in the wild, far from human habitation, and released following its capture.
