    In this instance its an innocent baby elephant.The need is to punish the officials who kept the pit open.the DEPARTMENT HEAD THAT WAS RESPONSIBLE MUST BE TAKEN TO TASK.This is not a matter for MS RW or MR or his brood of cronies whom he piloted to shout for him.ANYWAY SINCE IT WAS AN ELEPHANT THE CRONIES WILL NOT SHOUT OR DASH COCONUTS
