      Hello Friends,
      I have uploaded some photos of ' elephants in truck ' you
      can view them at http://community.webshots.com/user/sandeep_e
      There you can see how the elephants get down from the truck.. There
      are 18 photos showing different steps of elephant getting down from the
      truck.. Till recent years most of the elephants of Kerala (a state in south
      India ) were made to walk, even to distant places but now they are being
      transported in the trucks.. This gives comfort to elephants as they need
      not walk on the hot roads..
      Recently two accidents occurred to the tuskers who were carried in
      the trucks .. one in which the elephant fell from the truck while the truck
      had a sudden brake. on another accident the truck carrying elephant collided
      with another truck and the tusker lost a part of his tusk in the accident..
      The trucks carrying the elephants travel at about a speed of about 40-50
      Km/hour .. As there is no wind shield for the trucks which carry the
      elephants , i dont know wether it will cause any harm to the elephant
      especially to the eyes. The elephant will have to stand still for hours as
      they are in the truck.... may be some one who knows about elephants can
      comment about it..
