Letter to Union Minister of Railways

Dear Sri. Suresh Prabhuji,

I would like to bring your kind notice to the problem of death of Elephants and other wild animals by speeding trains at Walayar-Kottekkad section under Palakkad Railway Division in Kerala State. The Railway track of 30 KM from Palakkad in Kerala running to Coimbatore in Tamilnadu passes through thick forest areas having large number of Elephants and other wild animals. In the last couple of months, 4 Elephants and a large number of other wild animals including Deers were hit and killed by the speeding trains. It may kindly be noted that hitting of Elephants by trains may cause derailment of trains causing human causalities in addition to the loss of precious Wildlife. (more…)
