INDONESIA : A villager closes his nose as he stands next to a dead elephant at Serba Jadi sub-district in East Aceh, Aceh province, on December 10, 2010. Three endangered Sumatran elephants have been found dead after their herd rampaged through a village in western Indonesia, a conservationist and officials said. The cause of the animals' deaths is being investigated but a local conservationist said they might have died after eating poison intended for wild boars as they scavenged for food at village stores. There are up to 3,350 Sumatran elephants remaining in the wild, according to the environmental group WWF. AFP PHOTO / SUTANTA ADITIYA
