Sri Lankan cabinet approves special herd of 35 elephants for peraheras

Crushing blow…35 elephants will be lost to the criminal network of hand-shaking/back-slapping Religion and Culture.

An appalling decision, and one we will fight…

“The herd would consist of tusker elephants, and male, and female elephants and would be obtained from the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and from the Udawalawe Elephant Transit Home.

Minister of Wildlife Gamini Jayawickrama Perera presented the proposal to the Cabinet following reports that there was a shortage of elephants for cultural events including the Kandy Esala Perahera.”
