Description: "For this investigation, a total 363 elephants belonging to FCs across five states --- Assam, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal --- and one Union Territory (Andaman Islands) were observed. The British, to harvest timber for mainland use, brought captive elephants to Andaman from the mainland and until a ban on timber extraction was imposed in 2001, harvest of timber and using elephants for this purpose continued even under the Indian government. Assam, along other north eastern states of India, is viewed as one of the last strongholds of the Asian elephant in both captive and wild elephant; less than 1500 continue to thrive in captivity in this state."
