In northern India in the state of Bihar, a 50-year-old man decided to bequeath his land to two elephants. The family of Mohammed Aktar did not appreciate such an act.
However, the whole point is that one of the elephants - Moti - once saved the life of a man. According to Aktar, some time ago Moti went to another city with an elephant driver, but the driver fell ill, and Aktar came to help him.
At some point, the man woke up from the fact that Moti was unusually loud trumpeting. Looking out the window, Aktar saw an armed man aiming directly at him. Thanks to a quick reaction, Aktar managed to escape.
As a token of gratitude, the man decided to leave the rescuer elephant and his friend about 6.25 acres (2.5 hectares) of land. As noted by "Interfax", he explained this to his family by the fact that at the moment the man left to the Indian elephant only 15% of the territories in which this endangered species used to live. However, neither the wife nor the children of Aktar shared such zeal - they are not very happy with a smaller piece of land than the elephants will receive.
