WATCH: Elephant kills  four villagers in India

This is the shocking moment when an elephant kills a man by throwing him in the air and trampling him to death in east India. It is the latest deadly attack by the wild elephant herd in the rural West Bengal area in the past few days. The wild herd has been causing havoc in the Bardhaman and Bankura districts, where it has killed four villagers and injured two others this weekend

Prakash Boyra, 40, died after one of the elephants threw him into the air with its trunk and then trampled him.
Images filmed by fellow villages show the man being flung into the air like a rag doll by the huge animal, who slams him back onto the floor as people look on horrified and helpless.

Last month a wild elephant went on an hours-long rampage in a town in eastern India, damaging about 100 homes, shops and other buildings. Photos showed the bewildered animal wandering around Siliguri, about 360 miles north of Kolkata, crashing into structures, as people scurried out of the way.
