    Why cannot these useless, dumb engine drivers slow down at these known elephant crossings?

    Killing Elephants , knowing their crossings are ahead is a serious crime and the engine drivers be punished

    What about elephants poisoned in Habarana. SriLanka is a place where life is not valued.

    Train accidents killing elephants at elephant crossings are rather common in such places. Government is yet to take proper actions to save elephants from these train accidents by building underpass for the elephants to move from place place safely without crossing over rail tracks.
