Elephant is our heritage animal and is subjected to protection under  Wildlife Act,1972 , schedule I.

Tribals sell the jumbo meat by various names and have developed a taste for it.
The trunk is apparently the tastiest part to eat, said Dr Zahan Ahmed.
Assam has a population of 5,000-6,000 elephants.
Reports of elephant meat consumption in parts of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh have raised the hackles of forest officials and wildlife activists.

Elephant help in new growth of dormant plants, clear the path and help in dispersal of seeds miles away from trees
