    owner of the buffaloes should be taken to task for exposing innocent road users to such dangers. imagine the situation if it was a car load of passengers.

    Animals are exempted from law in the animal kingdom

    Rajitha Sunday, 23 January 2011 05:36 AM

    Everyone in this forum seems to be putting the blame on the truck driver. now just imagine while you were driving you see a herd of buffaloes right in front of you. the owner of the herd is the real culprit. he should pay for all the damages to the truck and the road.

    its the buffaloes fault

    Oyage Sudu Kella Sunday, 23 January 2011 05:41 AM

    A donkey has killed the buffaloes.

    meranchi Sunday, 23 January 2011 06:02 AM

    he is well over buffalo i agree with u

    Razor Blade Sunday, 23 January 2011 06:09 AM

    Buffalo owner is another buffalo to leave animals on the road.

    Owner Sunday, 23 January 2011 06:45 AM

    I never thought this will happen to my herd of buffaloes. :(

    sxhabeeb Sunday, 23 January 2011 06:55 AM

    may be the driving buffalo from the opposition !

    Farmer Sunday, 23 January 2011 07:02 AM

    Come on guys. Dont insult the buffaloes..

    johnnycash Monday, 24 January 2011 02:58 AM

    dont insult buffaloes. if they were taught driving they'd have been careful than this driver

    ishi Sunday, 23 January 2011 08:08 AM

    I completely agree with you.

    Roshan Sunday, 23 January 2011 08:59 AM

    Its funny that all these people are blaming the driver. The herd owner must have kept his animals under control. Some people expect vehicles to be driven at 30km/h.. when the whole journey is about 150km. They expect the driver to drive for 5 hours. Get a life people - Roads are meant for transportation !

    Ari Sunday, 23 January 2011 09:41 AM

    Coming in the wake of many 'buffalo' comments, the one you have offered is truly refreshing!

    Buruwa Sunday, 23 January 2011 10:25 AM

    Please don't blame me for the human error!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Confucious Sunday, 23 January 2011 11:18 AM

    Yes, obviously if he was there he could have stopped it!

    Oyage Sudu Kella Sunday, 23 January 2011 11:38 AM

    Aiyo.... HKM :)

    Royalist Saturday, 22 January 2011 02:34 PM

    You mean nine ministers?

    Holman Sunday, 23 January 2011 11:53 AM

    Kanthale police must be feasting on buffalo meat !

    famous victor Saturday, 22 January 2011 02:48 PM

    poor animals. where was the owner. he should be held responsible.

    Alien Saturday, 22 January 2011 03:02 PM

    Do we have to conduct another election to fill those vacant 9 seats ???

    Asoka Saturday, 22 January 2011 03:03 PM

    Was it another Buffalo driving the lorry at the time? No surprise there then!

    John Doe Saturday, 22 January 2011 03:16 PM

    Meat Fest! :D

    Kaslana Sunday, 23 January 2011 12:37 PM

    Can we direct this type of heartless lorry drivers to perform similar acts in Sri Jayawardenapura? Different type of buffaloes driven in luxury cars are a plenty in this part of town.

    MW Sunday, 23 January 2011 12:47 PM

    100% agreed ! I am surprised at many comments here

    Lord Sunday, 23 January 2011 12:51 PM

    Yes, it was a practice run before the real targets

    Terrence Fernando Saturday, 22 January 2011 03:52 PM

    Everyday we hear these accidents!!!!

    DS Sunday, 23 January 2011 01:11 PM

    Was this accident happened in Parliment?

    Tharaka Chanaka Saturday, 22 January 2011 03:58 PM

    Straight to Jail for the driver!

    mnsmart Saturday, 22 January 2011 04:15 PM

    What about the buffalo who is looking after the herd?

    demon Saturday, 22 January 2011 04:19 PM

    damn ! buffaloes were killed by a buffalo...

    Sudesh Saturday, 22 January 2011 04:43 PM

    seems the driver is a mad buffalo

    Sumal Saturday, 22 January 2011 05:11 PM

    A buffalo behind the wheel killed nine buffaloes.

    RAMBO Monday, 24 January 2011 06:20 AM

    The idiotic owner of these buffoloes should be responsible in the first place.

    hash Saturday, 22 January 2011 05:27 PM

    are these the buffalow types near the diyawanna.. if so no issues at all .....

    DHA Saturday, 22 January 2011 05:53 PM

    OMG....now even poor animals are not spared.....

    rosh Saturday, 22 January 2011 06:05 PM

    He may b a bareless driver, but the culprit to be blamed is the herd owner which let them loose. Feel sorry for the poor buffaloes.

    rohitha Saturday, 22 January 2011 06:58 PM

    It would have been better if they were 9 Ministers, instead of buffaloes. The country could have saved well over Rs.9 million every month.

    bernard Saturday, 22 January 2011 07:47 PM

    Hope the driver is permanently crippled.

    Thas Saturday, 22 January 2011 08:12 PM

    It would have been better, if 9 Modayas had been killed.

    kumar Saturday, 22 January 2011 08:19 PM

    four-legged buffs should not be allowed on main roads as there are many two-legged ones behind motorized vehicles.

    makhan Saturday, 22 January 2011 08:56 PM

    Either the driver is a buffalo or he is well over the limits... can't see a herd of animals ?

    hasbu Sunday, 23 January 2011 05:57 PM

    fine he owners letting he animals ion he road without a controller which is leading for many accidents.

    Grumpy Sunday, 23 January 2011 12:29 AM

    You mean parliamentarians?

    dark man Sunday, 23 January 2011 01:14 AM

    Mee Haraka !!!!!!!

    Ranjan Sunday, 23 January 2011 01:38 AM

    Does this Nine buffaloes killed, include the driver of the truck as well?

    Dakshina Sunday, 23 January 2011 01:49 AM

    Reckless driving associted with no respect for anything seem to be the order of the day for some.

    jen Sunday, 23 January 2011 02:16 AM

    Not a surprise………

    asoka abeywardena Sunday, 23 January 2011 03:06 AM

    most of these drivers are buffaloes that's why...

    Sunil-canada Sunday, 23 January 2011 03:11 AM

    Vehicle driven by another Buffalo!!!!

    T. Ruth Sunday, 23 January 2011 03:45 AM

    What happened to the buffaloe that was driving the lorry?

    T. Ruth

    siripala Sunday, 23 January 2011 10:58 PM

    Lorry driver will get away with a tap on the writs. Driver should be remanded!!

    meranchi Sunday, 23 January 2011 04:07 AM

    recovery lost from the driver and need to check his eye vision..i

    KolambaBanda Sunday, 23 January 2011 11:39 PM

    Sri Lankans dont have anything to kill these days so... now they are after animals,,,,at least for now.Elephents, Buffalos..dogs. what next?

    ruwan Sunday, 23 January 2011 04:40 AM

    Buffolow driver.

    Iro Sunday, 23 January 2011 04:45 AM

    Sadly, this is a tagedy that could have been avoided. The courts oughtto task the owner of the herd for letting his livestock run free on public roads.

    Labby Sunday, 23 January 2011 04:52 AM

    Charge the driver for 'animal slaughter'
