An elephant was killed by a train and 15 elephants are mourning its death by getting revenge on the people who live in the town where the elephant met its demise. Last week an elephant was killed by a train near the village of Matari in eastern India, according to Yahoo News on Aug. 10.

Every day since that elephant was killed by the train, which is something that happens too often in this area, the elephants came back to the same spot and they've raised havoc. They've disrupted train service and they've actually damaged houses in the surrounding area and demolished part of a school house. Some folk in the area think that the elephants are out to get revenge for their dead herd member because it was hit and killed by a train.

The 15 elephants won't leave, even after some very loud fire crackers, a noise most animals will run from, were set off near the creatures. They appear to be in the area to stay, or at least until their mourning period has run its course. Experts say that the elephants return not realizing their family member is dead, but they come back to try and rescue them.
