A considerable number of animal deaths have been reported from many parts of the country, especially from the Puttalam and Kurunegala Districts, as a result of the prevailing drought condition.
It was reported that animals like monkeys, birds, deer, oxen and turtles were seen dead inside the Thabbowa Sanctuary.
Relevant authorities said if the situation worsened, animals would die from starvation. They therefore advised people to set-up water holes in places where animals frequented.
