    Better it affects the humans and not the animals, because the animals are better than the humans.

    make them wear sweaters and jackets!

    Right! Cattle survive temperatures well below freezing, and that does not happen in this part of the world.

    Asoka Monday, 07 February 2011 01:21 PM

    Let them rest in peace rather than serving bunch of humans who behave even worse than those animals.

    Watch out! Reports are coming in that a swarm of millions of locusts approaches from the East.

    Thas - well said! Animals by far have a higher code of ethics than the average human. Thank you. By the way, cattle never perish if it's only cold at 15 degrees. It could be some form of poisoning or infection.

    Very sad!

    Akash Monday, 07 February 2011 07:43 AM

    what about the 225 bulls and cows @ Jayawardenapura?

    Ranjith Rajasooriya Monday, 07 February 2011 07:50 AM

    They must have commited suicide as people insult them by calling politicos 'Haraka' or 'Mee-haraka'

    robinson Monday, 07 February 2011 07:53 AM

    Very sad. How much of service these animals would have given to the people.

    aaa Monday, 07 February 2011 07:59 AM

    Beware of eating beaf,etc as the meats of those animals might come to Market

    SamaWinisuru Monday, 07 February 2011 07:58 AM

    people avoid the jokes - this is a sad situation. have sympathy for these poor animals.

    tharanga Monday, 07 February 2011 07:59 AM

    Firaz Anver Monday, 07 February 2011 06:25 PM

    One never knows. One of the politicians may come out with this proposal of making them wear. This is the type we have in the present parliament.

    wARNING:::::::::::World food prices reached their highest level ever recorded in January and are set to keep rising for months, the UN food agency said on Thursday, warning that the hardest-hit countries could face turmoil.

    Ravana Monday, 07 February 2011 08:28 AM

    what did they die of ? They couldn't have frozen to death and I don't think the temperature even went into single digits in that part of the Country.

    TB Monday, 07 February 2011 08:40 AM

    Man Akash!! Good comment man..

    spark Monday, 07 February 2011 08:46 AM

    How come the ones in Parliament are still alive?

    lankaputha Monday, 07 February 2011 08:49 AM

    Temperatures are not bearable.. Please do an investigation. There are million cows in Ambeywela facing more colder weathers but still alive. This may be some Virus or Poisioning.

    robinson Monday, 07 February 2011 08:50 AM

    Something to think about. I hope the authorities will clarify.

    yoga Monday, 07 February 2011 08:50 AM

    Very bad. I felt very sorry. People were affected by war. But now animals are died by climate changing.

    I the Jury Monday, 07 February 2011 09:02 AM

    Look at the events carefully. History repeats. Egypt -
    People revolt against dictatorial rule, the plagues stuck the Egypt 3500 years ago, just like this, now seen in SL.

    Time for the wicked leaders to repent from sinful ways ! Otherwise they better learn what happened to the Egyptian kings, their fist-born and horsemen and chariots (or henchmen and limos).

    Sadly our Moses is jailed !

    Shan Monday, 07 February 2011 09:03 AM

    It need not be necessarily the cold weather that killed them, animals can survive adverse weather situations. It can be some sickness the animals have got. Our Vets should know about it, not the Met department.
