NEW DELHI — A wild elephant trampled to death Prabhakar Sahu, a 45-year-old schoolteacher, who was riding a moped, the United News of India reported Sunday.

The elephant had strayed from a herd in Kantamal forest in eastern India's Orissa state. Police said the elephant sat down beside the body as if to guard it before officials drove the beast into the forest.
