An elephant belonging to the Meenakshi Sundareswarar Temple in Madurai is recovering from an injury at the ongoing rejuvenation camp for temple elephants in Mettupalayam in Coimbatore.

The 16-year old elephant Parvathi had sustained injury on her forehead while being bathed at the camp site near Vanabadrakaliamman Temple.

Veterinary doctors attending on the elephant said that the injury had turned septic. “Such cases (septic) are common in elephants as they can develop allergy and we are providing regular treatment for her. There is no cause for panic on Parvathi’s condition,” a veterinarian said.

Sources at the Meenakshi Sundareswarar temple said the elephant had developed allergy on her skin near the forehead as it was regularly playing in the mud.
