ERODE, INDIA –  A poacher was electrocuted and another sustained burns in the Sathyamangalam forest, police said today. The two had tried to enter a private land last night to fell trees and came in contact with an ‘electric’ fence put by the owner to scare away wild animals. The land owner is absconding. Police said as per rules, the fence should be charged using batteries but the farmer had provided electricity connection to the fence which is an offence.
