A wild elephant has died of electrocution in Randeniya, Wellawaya.

Investigations found that the wild elephant got contacted with an illegally laid power line early this morning (Mar. 24).

The wildlife officials guess the age of the dead animal to be around 15 to 25 years.

This power line was laid over the Kirindi Oya and due to a short circuit, several other animals and fish had electrocuted in the area.
