Residents from four villages in Devramvehera and Lunugamwehera staged a protest this morning (Jul 13) saying that authorities are planning to erect an elephant fence across their farmlands.
 
The protesters blocked the Matara - Wellawaya road at the 70th Post in Devramvehera this morning.
 
Our correspondent stated that the protesters dispersed after Lunugamwehera Divisional Secretary promised to find a solution.
 
Meanwhile, the operation launched to drive away elephants from Suriyawewa was successful.
 
But Walawa Left Bank Joint Farmers' Union stated that there are defects in the electric fence, which was erected to prevent the return of elephant to human habitat.
 
The farmers' union, President S.K. Mahinda said that the wildlife officials are responsible for the defects.
