JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, science
A pregnant elephant has been found dead in a palm oil plantation on Indonesia’s Sumatra island, in what authorities suspect was a deliberate poisoning, an official said Wednesday. The animal's body was found near the remote Seuneubok Bayu village in Aceh on December 22, after authorities received a tip off from locals, Aceh conservation centre head Sapto Aji Prabowo told AFP. The Sumatran elephant was carrying 13-month old male foetus and was at least six months short of giving birth. read more
