Elephant gores Australian tourist to death in Sabah

KOTA KINABALU (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - An Australian female tourist was gored to death by a bull elephant that charged at her as she was photographing it in Sabah's Tabin Wildlife Reserve. Ms Jenna O'Grady Donley, 26, a Sydney-based veterinarian, was attacked by the elephant, which was apparently startled by the sounds of the camera shutter and flash in the 6.30am incident on Wednesday. Witnesses claimed that she could not flee in time as the elephant charged at her suddenly. Her female companion and guide escaped the attack at the 123,000ha wildlife reserve about 100km from Lahad Datu. State Wildlife Department director Dr Laurentius Ambu said a group of women and their guide had gone to a nearby mud volcano and decided to take the wildlife trail on their way back to the resort.
