    Government start to implement maximum punishments to these kind of activities. We should be a good example for the world on protecting nature at the best.

    So sad.

    what a sad ending to this beautiful animal. Crooks should be punished to the maximum so the pochers will learn a lesson from this.

    Wish we could learn to express so much immotions when an innocent human being gunned down.

    Sad to see this video.

    We should give maximum punishment for persons who killed this leopard. Rs 5000 - 25,000 fine is not enough :(
    But that will happen I guess.....

    What a magnificent creator, brutally killed by these greedy thugs!
    Why does the video hide the faces of the criminals? I live in Singapore, and here they publish the photos of criminals and even people who have committed petty crimes. Sri Lanka should adapt a practice of publishing the photos of these crooks so that the whole world knows who they are - this will definitely be a deterrant for crimes as such.

    Jail them and throw the keys to sea.

    So another killing field in Sri Lanka??

    Che Friday, 17 June 2011 07:55 PM

    What to do, when Sri Lanka's foremost religion is Greed, It is the heart and soul of It's Culture,
