Elephant Resembling Deceased Mysuru Dasara Pachyderm: Throughout Karnataka, countless animal enthusiasts mourned the death of Dasara elephant Arjuna. He died in an operation to relocate radio-collar rogue elephants that had been causing havoc in villages for months, killing farmers. Arjuna was estimated to be around 64 years old.

Despite Arjuna’s death, a similar-looking pachyderm sharing the same features as the deceased Arjuna has taken people by surprise.

Fans of Arjuna are also calling the elephant a reincarnation of the slain elephant found in the backwaters of the Kabini River.

The elephant was discovered in the Kabini backwater area near Belle Camp of Nagarahole Tiger Reserve, where Arjuna lived.

Tourists spotted this elephant during a safari, which captivated them as a counterpart to the famous Dasara elephant Arjuna. Tourists took photos, which went viral, and the elephant came to be called ‘Junior Arjuna’.

A group of animals settle in the backwaters of Kabini in the summer. Elephants from various areas traverse the backwaters in search of food. Among them is Junior Arjuna.

During the famous Mysore Dasara, Arjuna carried the Golden Howdah for years, and he was a celebrated elephant not only in Karnataka but also beyond.

In Hassan, the Forest Department had been capturing troublesome tuskers in the Sakleshpur, Alur, Belur, and Yeslur ranges.

According to initial reports, Arjuna was assaulted by a wild tusker during the operation, resulting in injuries to his abdomen.
