KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Police say a wild elephant entered a village in southeastern Nepal and trampled three villagers to death and injured two more.
Police official Satya Narayan Rajbangsi says the elephant entered Prithvinagar village Wednesday night and trampled the villagers before being chased away.
The village is located some 250 miles (400 kilometers) southeast of Katmandu, near the border with India.
Rajbangsi said Friday that the village has never been attacked by elephants before.
Wild elephants have been known to enter villages looking for stored grains and sugarcane and sometimes attack humans when they try to stop them.
