Wild elephants are often arriving in Omanthai area, Vavuniya, looking for water due to the dry weather.

A herd of wild elephants arrived at Omanthai’s Kombuwaiththa Kulamwewa area on the 17th. They were found trapped in a farm-well.

Wildlife officials and police with the aid of residents worked to rescue the herd.

However, a female elephant died when wildlife officers opened fire during an attempt to rescue 4 elephants fallen into the well.

Now the Sustainable Development and Wildlife Ministry has called a full investigation over the death of the elephant.
