The Sri Lanka Army and the Wildlife Conservation Officers yesterday launched a three day program to drive away a herd of wild elephants roaming in villages in Nettchikulam in Omantha, Vavuniya Range Forest Officer W.J.K. Herath said.

He said that this was the first time that the army was involved in such a program and the aim of it was to protect the newly settled villagers from the threat of wild elephants. An electric fence would be erected after chasing the elephants to Nedunkeni jungles, Herath said.

Vavuniya District Secretary P.S.M. Charles and Brigadier C. Ranaweera of the 563 Brigade were among the senior officials who supervised the program. (RM)

    Now elephants have to give up their corridor and habitat for the 'New Settlers'. Move the human ____ nearer to human habitation. Save our magnificient elephants.

    Elephants are fast losing their habitat due to encroachment of man and very soon they will be only found in captivity

    There must be another program to drive tree burglars away from forests. Because the damage they do to the environment is uncountably massive.

    DHA Tuesday, 09 November 2010 10:24 AM

    This more looks like tiger chase rather than a elephant chase.....!!!.......

    Boobamba Tuesday, 09 November 2010 06:05 AM

    Good idea, since that no LTTE cadres to chase behind now why not they undertake a new mission of chasing of elephants.

    We should have a one child policy for Elephants like China, without harming them. All the Irrigation wells are death traps for this innocent and majestic creatures who bring beauty to our jungles. Also they protect the jungles from Human. Please initiate to make arrangement to cover the Mouth of the Irrigation wells from hard round timber of appropriate size and have a small opening for irrigation purpose so that the elephants would not be accidentally fall inside.
