A photo circulating on social media claiming to be a photo of the wild elephant injured in the accident at Moragoda in Thalawa in which veteran artiste Jackson Anthony was seriously injured, is deceptive.
It is reported that the photo shows a wild elephant reportedly critically injured after being hit by a train in the Jalpaiguri District of West Bengal, India in September 2019.
A wildlife blog pointed out that the wild elephant had died after being in a critical condition.
Meanwhile, the Department of Wildlife Conservation has today (04) deployed 2 teams to track down the wild elephant involved in the accident at Moragoda in Thalawa.
Anthony and 2 others were seriously injured after the vehicle they were travelling in hit a wild elephant on Saturday.
