Ben Eliezer Visits Granddaughter Mauled by Elephant
(IsraelNN.com) Infrastructures Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer visited his 17 year old granddaughter who was attacked by an elephant after she broke into the Ramat Gan Safari Park.
The girl, who had entered the park with her 20 year old boyfriend, suffered medium to serious injuries.
The Safari's spokeswoman said that the incident was the result of "trespassing and criminal behavior" and that "even the trainers do not dare enter the elephants' night homes." She said that the girl had apparently scared the elephant, who was not used to seeing anyone near his night residence.
