India:Express train kills 40th elephant in less than 10 years as calls are made to restrict speed limits on the notorious stretch of line

Indian villagers, along with forestry workers, watch as  the body of an elephant is hoisted off the railway tracks by a crane after it was struck by a passenger train at Mongpong village, near Mahananda Wildlife Sanctury, some 25 kms from Siliguri.  The full grown male elephant was hit by a speeding train while crossing the track as several trains pass along the route in the state of West Bengal's Dooars Forest.
