Elephant named after Osama bin Laden dies following fatal stampede

An elephant named after Osama bin Laden has died in captivity after going on a wild stampede that killed five villagers in India.

The rogue animal — nicknamed “Laden” — died early Sunday in Assam’s Orang National Park, where officials planned to teach it to patrol wildlife parks and sanctuaries in the state, according to AFP.

The beast killed five people, including three women, during a terror-filled 24 hours through Goalpara district in October. It had been tracked for days by forestry officers and was tranquilized last week.

On Sunday morning he was found dead.

“The animal was behaving as normal. It was, however, kept with its legs tied so that it couldn’t escape,” a park ranger, who asked to remain anonymous, told AFP.

The cause of death was unclear, but a senior official said the state government had sent a team of veterinarians to carry out an autopsy.

About 2,300 people have been killed by elephants in India in the last five years, while 700 elephants have been killed since 2011, according to the report.

Elephants frequently migrate into Goalpara, resulting in many fatal encounters with people amid rampant deforestation.

Some elephants have been poisoned or shot by locals, while others have died on electric fences or on railroads cutting through migration routes.
