Legal elephant owners to get licenses, microchip

7 March 2015 05:30 am - 2     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

Sports and Tourism Ministry has requested the CID to check the validity of the licences issued to those who were rearing elephants on a private basis and to submit a report on this matter

Deputy Minister Wasantha Senanayake said the ministry would issue a new license and a microchip to the owners who had valid licenses while legal action would be taken against those who did not have such licenses.

When asked whether the raids that were carried out recently on elephant owners had stopped, he said raids would continue if they come across any instances of illegal activity.

The deputy minister said a Cabinet paper would be presented with regard to elephant registration shortly.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    Microchips are the correct answer for this matter.
