New details suggest the elephant which killed zoo keeper Helen Schofield charged at her after getting an electric shock.
She was killed at Franklin Zoo by former circus elephant Mila.
It's understood the animal received a shock after it brushed its trunk against an electric fence that secures its enclosure.
Dr Schofield then went in to calm Mila down but the elephant charged.
The vet tripped while fleeing.
Mila then wrapped her trunk around the vet's midsection, and picked her up.
Helen Schofield was able to speak and calmly called the command to put her down but by the time the paramedic arrived she was dead.
