Videos confirm that an Elephant attacked and killed a 70-year-old woman in India, then returned to the funeral grounds to trample and destroy her corpse.
As mostly are aware of, elephants are said to be one of the most emotional animals, who can exhibit happiness, sadness, anger, compassion, and love.
On June, 10, 2022, an old woman named Maya Murmu, from Raipal village was brutally attacked in a nearby forest by an elephant while collecting water.
She was then rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead on arrival.
However, the unthinkable happened after her family brought her body home to make arrangements for her funeral. Bizarrely, the very same elephant returned to the village and proceeded to attack Maya’s corpse.
It trampled on the corpse and signalled other elephants, who joined to attack the village.
The other elephants shockingly managed to identify Maya’s home, destroyed it and killed all the goats living there. Though no one was hurt, the elephants wrecked almost the entire village at the end.
Witnesses in Odisha speculates that the old woman may have offended the elephant in the past, hence the need to seek revenge.
