Trample-Ground

A vigorous scraping or trampling of the ground following the birth of a baby. The mother uses her forefeet to scrape the ground clear of vegetation, perhaps to help remove the smell that may attract predators. She may also use her tusks to plough the ground. (145a) This behavior has also been seen when an elephant kills another elephant or a person. (145b).
