A poultry farm in the Madurankuliya area was set on fire by an unidentified gang because of a personal dispute this morning, Mundalama police said. They said 600 fowls were burnt to death.

The poultry farm owner said this act of vandalism was done to take revenge after his goats had entered a block of land belonging to a area politician and had damaged his coconut nursery. (Pix and news by Hiran Priyankara Jayasinghe)

    Chant perith every morning, observe pansil every or just recite it, listen all day to Bana. The final result is this.

    wrong they don't have a heart or a brain.

    LongLeg Tuesday, 24 July 2012 03:45 AM

    this is what happens when weird creatures who are part man part dog and part pig are given power.

    Dalu Banda Monday, 23 July 2012 03:01 PM

    don`t worry, the politician will meet the same fate

    Fazli Monday, 23 July 2012 03:20 PM

    Oh what crime ! six hundred brutal murders !

    patriot Monday, 23 July 2012 03:20 PM

    Disgusting to hear such an incident from so called Dhamma deepa. No words to express my feelings. Hope the culprit will burn in hell.

    Dinithi Monday, 23 July 2012 03:35 PM

    They would have been killed anyway. so why are you sad?

    Fusion Monday, 23 July 2012 03:49 PM

    Ok, so what crime did these fowls commit? What kind of a loser takes revenge on the poor fowls?

    Silva Tuesday, 24 July 2012 04:13 AM

    Try not to bring religion into everything bad that happens in this country. The poultry farmers , and the arsonists may well have been non Buddhists.

    asoka Monday, 23 July 2012 03:55 PM

    so its a goats fowls issue why humans get involve...?

    LongLeg Tuesday, 24 July 2012 08:13 AM

    yeah he will say crimes against chickens do not count.

    cxcb Tuesday, 24 July 2012 08:47 AM

    no one bothered when killing thousands of people with bullets and fire, so why worrying for these birds.
    madness everywhere but now it is worst in Sri Lanka.

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 24 July 2012 04:34 AM

    This is what everyone wishes to happen, but actually never happens. Just see the war criminals, still grinning on TV and enjoying life to the fullest.

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 24 July 2012 04:43 AM

    You are right, but this is the New SL where criminality, dishonesty, arrogance and sheer impunity are ingrained from the top most person down to three wheel driver.

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 24 July 2012 04:57 AM

    Dhamma deepa? Who said this country was a Dhamma deepa? This is only by the criminals themselves. Actual fact this is a Karumay Deepa.

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 24 July 2012 05:26 AM

    Only by the new found patriots who listen to pirirth everyday, thereafter stand bogusly on the National Anthem, have to wear white to show they are pure and talk with concern and sweetly in public.

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 24 July 2012 05:27 AM

    This is the same question the UN is also quering on war crimes.

    Game Over Tuesday, 24 July 2012 05:21 AM

    Not the point. It is all about being Humane - there is a massive difference of being killed in one go as oppose to being burnt.

    heylosers Tuesday, 24 July 2012 05:15 AM

    Remember what Gota said...No increasing violence in the island..none at all...

    poor animals...what did they do to deserve this...

    Minister Tuesday, 24 July 2012 05:43 AM

    May be roasted chicken is available for discounted price in Mundalama these days!

    Asitha Tuesday, 24 July 2012 05:41 AM

    Hey my friend, Did you think as 'poor animal' when you eat their flesh?

    Ajith Monday, 23 July 2012 10:55 PM

    Another criminal barbarian act by a politician. Looks like they have a different heart.

    Pradeep Monday, 23 July 2012 11:07 PM

    This is murder. Can somebody tell how 600 chicks were killed. Did the murderer used kerosene oil to burn. May be mentally retard.

    Tintin Monday, 23 July 2012 11:19 PM

    Nice and Intelligent way to settle disputes. Given the chance probably these animals may have settled the matter more amicably.
    Great example and role modelling for generations to come.

    AAMS.HAMEEO Tuesday, 24 July 2012 09:52 AM

    Dont utter rubbish

    Daz Rogers Tuesday, 24 July 2012 12:35 AM

    Idiotic cowards! What did the Fowls ever do to them. If you have a dispute with someone man up and face that person or go to the police. Don't take it out on innocent animals.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 24 July 2012 10:17 AM

    A foul act by a stupid, cruel politician.

    citizen1 Tuesday, 24 July 2012 01:04 AM

    I guess a total dud with nothing but poop in his brain thought this one up.

    IrangaJ Monday, 23 July 2012 01:30 PM

    How sad !

    markus soosapillai Monday, 23 July 2012 01:31 PM

    This is a buddhist country. Dont kill cows but you can burn fowls alive.

    Mikee Tuesday, 24 July 2012 10:50 AM

    We live in a Dharmadveepa and go to the temple every Sunday without fail.

    RF Monday, 23 July 2012 01:40 PM

    Wow rosted chicken.....

    mahinda wijesekara Monday, 23 July 2012 01:30 PM

    Is this so called religious society ? Dharmadeepa?

    limatc Monday, 23 July 2012 01:51 PM

    those who did the damage will see to it to their loved ones , then it is too late to cry and regret , fowls too are GOD's creation and they too are living beings , for the same of having anger with another person you cannot kill innocents living beings . sad to say that the loved ones of the person who killed and the person who organised to kill will face the same fate sooner or later .

    Political Illiterate Monday, 23 July 2012 02:00 PM

    Why no recourse to rule of law? If goats ate the nursery palms, which i believe is an accident and not deliberate action, make police entry and claim compensation. Why take law into your hands as in an uncivilised society? This is why you need proper leadership in all aspects and importantly in politics.

    Nodrog Monday, 23 July 2012 02:01 PM

    Will this crime also skip Gota's statistics?

    Cyclops Tuesday, 24 July 2012 07:12 AM

    FOUL!!!!!!!!!

    nalakap Monday, 23 July 2012 02:12 PM

    may the criminals get the same punishment before they leave this earth

    DMirrorFan Monday, 23 July 2012 02:17 PM

    Good criminal rate is going down!!! What a secretary... Face palm...

    Dr Tuesday, 24 July 2012 07:03 AM

    Hope the chicks were insured!!

    John Monday, 23 July 2012 02:13 PM

    What a savage & barbaric society SL has become in recent years whilst we oft boast of our ancient civilisation - a disgrace indeed!

    Mervin_Silva Wednesday, 25 July 2012 06:18 AM

    Aparaade roast chicken tika :(

    ceylon Monday, 23 July 2012 02:37 PM

    It is not a surprised for a politician to be involved. They do not care about any religion.

    baluwssq Monday, 23 July 2012 02:44 PM

    so sad........ then again a politician..

    Niranj Tuesday, 24 July 2012 11:46 AM
