    Asking for troubles in an unsafe ground with unpredictable animals.

    So true. Quite reckless knowing elephants can run rampant.

    best part is our seniors even take infants and watch so close to the animals no brains

    If the elephants had turned back in anger, we would have witnessed a mahout race as well.

    Pleasure from the pain of an innocent animal.

    How horribly cruel to treat a majestic creature in such a manner just for a fleeting few minutes of entertainment. We as a nation need to move past these cruel archaic treatment of animals for our amusement and tradition. The only tradition we must carry forward for our future generations should be kindness and fair treatment towards all living beings.

    DJ M avik Sunday, 22 April 2018 06:15 PM

    Yes this is abuse! so are cows in a milk factory ! This is nothing compared to life long suffering and cruel death cattle has to go through.

    Is this animal used to these races with so much of torture? Hasn't it born in the jungle and deserve a life in the jungle? What pleasure do these people get by making him run in a race with so much of inhuman and cruel treatment? Isn't this animal abuse? Where are the people who cry day and night for animal rights?

    Where are the jokes in the hill in yellow fancy dress? Is this our culture? If so we need to change fast. The same can be seen at the Dehiwala Zoo. The elephants are chained from the front leg and the hind leg. They can hardly move. The chained are loosened for them to have some water. What a shame. Soon we may have to visit a Zoo in UK, US, Japan or Australia to see elephants. There was a joker politician who wanted to sell elephants overseas. That was enough.
