I know that the headline of this post can seem quirky or strange but this kind of things happen. Elephants use to be killed in train accidents in India because it seems that the railways pass from zones where this animals natural live. Unfortunately this has happened several times and despite that the Indian authorities has recommended to the railway company reduce the speed of the trains in that areas they have ignored the several proposals. As a curious facts I can add to this story that only in the West Bengal state has been killed at least 50 elephants by 2004 when, ironically, the mascot of this railway company is an elephant calf. If you are agree and think that this must change please, sign the petition. Let’s hope that no more elephants are killed by train.
