A wild elephant that was spotted by a sailor within the Navy high security zone in Trincomalee, is believed to have entered through the ocean front as the land area was securely fenced, sources said.

Wild Life Officer N. Suresh Kumar said a team of Wild life officers reached the camp premises and discovered the elephant hiding in a thicket. They have sought the assistance of the Mahaweli Zone Wild Life veterinary surgeon to drive it away.(Amadoru Amarajeewa)
