What Stomps In the Shadows
The small South Asian nation of Bangladesh has plenty of problems: poverty, disease, overpopulation, illiteracy, corruption, flooding, cyclones… and now, apparently, wild elephant attacks.
I don’t know about this, though:
Wild elephants frequently raid human habitation during harvesting season. At nightfall they enter the fields and damage crops, trees and homes. The entire herd then melts into the forest at daybreak.
What are these, ghost ninja elephants??
