    Keep these noble animals off these fancy dress parades. The is the 21 century and not the stone age.

    Where are the animal rights activists? why don't we leave the animals in their habitats to lead their own lives?

    Rohan G Thursday, 10 October 2013 07:32 AM

    I agree 100% - Please set these gentle creatures free. Let them live their lives in the jungles where they belong. This is animal cruelty in the name of religion.

    Leave the animals alone you pigs !!!

    This is why animals should not be used as entertainment or in parades and such, then when the animal runs wild there's nonsense talk about putting the animal down, i personally am against such things. Animals belong in the wild and not to entertain human beings.

    Jumbo MANGALA got furious.

    My condolences to the families of the deceased. This is what happens when you force wild animals into idiotic religious & other events.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 11 October 2013 10:04 AM

    It is high time that we give up these primitive methods of parading animals in so called Peraheras in this 21st century. It is only uncivilised barbarians in deep African jungles who do so in the name of religion.
