    Animals are far better with Human qualities, than many Sri Lankans. Time we have a more humane education system and awareness at a young age.

    Hon president and all animal protecting organizations please rendet the maximum punishment to these heartless perpetrators.

    Animal rights organizations are only interested in elephants.

    What a perverse community with no respect either for humans or for animals ? Was it that Buddha taught ?

    No mercy....the perpetrators should be punished the same way.....who on earth would have the mindset to be such cruel to such innocent timid poor helpless creatures

    Only cows and elephants are considered animals in Sri Lanka and we should know this by now.
