Wild elephants apparently went on a deadly rampage in southern India, killing a man, damaging property, and injuring others.

The pachyderms "attacked" the city of Mysore in India's Karnataka state, but were eventually tranquillized according to the AP. Hundreds are apparently killed every year in India when these animals wander into urban areas.

Footage of the elephant goring a man was broadcast on New Delhi Television, according to the AP. There are photos of the incident in the slideshow below.

The two elephants were eventually tranquilized and chained to other elephants in order to keep them from freeing themselves and continuing their rampage.
