Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kumki is the local name for captive, trained Indian elephants.[1] These are used mostly for taming and training of newly captured wild elephants and also to chase away wild elephants that stray in to human settlements.

Kumkis are not the tame elephants widely found in Indian temples. An elephant has to undergo extensive training before it can become a Kumki. Several animal activists have appealed against this "kraal" training system.
