    Excellent job. Well done.

    Your comment about a politician is nothing but blatant racism. DM even blocks replies to yours, but does not at least delete yours thus only promoting your vulgarity. Why I am having to reach you this way. Truth hurts, but it is a bitter yet better medicine that not only cures, it also heals..

    Excellent job. You all deserve praise of all citizens.

    This shows how humane we Sri Lankans are. Timely saving, if not the leopard could have died several hours later if the animal itself tried escape methods. "Budu Saranai" to the Vet and all those who helped.

    Well, sad to say the latest news is that the Leopard has passed away.

    Leopard creates a nightmare for villagers and small animals. it needs flesh of at least 365 animals for one year. killing one leopard will rescue hundred other animals from him
