LATEHAR: The death of a three-year-old baby elephant in Baresanrh range, considered to be the prime elephant habitat in Palamu Tiger Reserve, has triggered fears of the highly-contagious anthrax gripping wild animals. The national park authorities came to know about the carcass of the elephant nearly seven days after the death but postmortem could not be conducted as the body was in a highly-decomposed state.
