Five French Nationals on a Habarana Elephant Safari were admitted to the Habarana Hospital after falling from the elephant they were riding. A hospital spokesman said four of them left the hospital as they had minor injuries while another was still getting treatment as his condition was serious.

They had fallen from the elephant as the protective iron bar at the elephant’s back had broken while they were riding on the HabaranaHiriwadunna route. (Kanchana Kumara Ariyadasa)

    Stop elephant riding. Animal cruelty. Most of the monks have rented their temple elephants for safaris. make an inquiry.

    Was it five grown ups, the iron contraption, plus the mahout on an elephant back?

    We need to be kinder towards these animals.

    Earning money should be done with kindness as well.

    Falling or jumping off elephants is common these days.

    I feel sorry for the Toruists, but damn good for those who are making that poor animals suffer. Ele rides should have some kind of rules. Iron bar is unacceptable, 5 people unacceptable - it is a living being too.. have a heart. Max should be 2 grown ups and may be a kid that the ele could handle - I say ban ele rides all together since our people do not know where to draw the line and given the opportunity wil misuse putting the animal in jepordy.
