Residents say that a pregnant elephant has been in critical condition for several days in the Wilakandiya tank area in Wewatte, Mahiyanganaya.

However, they said that even though they informed the wildlife officials, no one from the department had turned up to treat the elephant.

We inquired about this matter from the Director General of Wildlife Chandana Suriyabandara. He said that the relevant officials have already taken action. However, when inquired about the treatment of the pregnant elephant that has been shot, he said that the statements of the villagers were unreliable.
