Four wild elephants including a baby elephant were electrocuted at Hadilla in Hambantota this morning. They had been killed when they came in contact with an unauthorized electric fence, police said.

Two days ago, another elephant was electrocuted due to an electric fence five kilometers away from the Mattala airport.

Very sad news but we keep on receiving and talk about it till the emotion remains and forget.
Let civil society/connected NGO's take meaning full steps with total participation, let us create a fund with voluntary contribution with a participation of respectable public servants. I am ready are you ready?????????/

PLEEEEEASE REMOVE THOSE FENCES AND ALLOW THESE PSACHYDERMS SLEEP PEACEFULLY THERE. MATTALA WILL BE USEFUL AT LEAST FOR THE FOUR LEGGED ANIMALS TO HAVE A PEACEFUL SLEEP!

The elephant should not have been the symbol of the UNP. Poor creatures.

Is it progress when we destroy ALL good things that nature has given us! The big word today is Greed; &" MONEY IS TRULY THE ROUTE TO ALL EVIL"
PROTECT NATURE & PROTECT THE COUNTRY'S GREATEST HERITAGE ITS WILDLIFE.

Nothing to do with the maththala or Govnmnt. The people who put up these unauthorized structures should be dealt with. Where are the animal rights. We have encroached their land . Still these people will Bragg being good Buddhists and go to temple with flowers. Hipporites .

No country like Sri Lanka abusing and harassing animals in the world. The minister who is trying his best to save these elephants does not get the support from the public instead they follow their own methods to stop them getting to their lands. Quite recently some monkeys were poisoned .Stray dog culling too continues. They, the authorities, come announcing to the villages that they would neuter and vaccinate them for rabies. The next day they come in a three wheeler to give the euthanizing injection (If the injection was a sedative the animals need to be kept fasting for at least 8 hours before administrating it ) and take the bodies away. That's why the dogs never returned back. .
