    After TIGERS now it is the ELEPHANTS. Poor people. According to the latest figures, the elephant population is too much for the land area of the country.

    The human - elephant conflict is bound to happen more frequently due to the large number of wild elephants in a very small land area. Its time measures are taken to reduce the elephant population and manage it, as done in some of the African countries. With the human populations too increasing this is the inevitable result.

    Every body talk about elephant right. nobody care human lives.

    Keep off the elephants habits. They roamed the earth long before us.

    People can argue, yet an innocent child lost his life for doing nothing. Please do something to control this conflict. Plus, it is really sorry to see the standard of living of these poor kids who should get equal opportunities otherwise. Please use money to develop the living standards of these villages. It would prosper more people (than spending to move exhibits from Colombo to rural areas).

    Some african countries use a new technique to keep the elephants away, which is to put beehive fences around farming areas. this also provides and additional income to the farmers as well. i don't know the feasibility of doing this in SL but is sure worth some investigation.

    Bigfoot you dont have any mercy to this innocent child.

    # ampare, Wild is wild; human activities make all the wild habitats colonized, the laws are violated with impunity by an influential few, therefore it is inevitable for a turf war, (or avenging to secure their 'homeland'?)
