The exact reason for the deaths of 5 female tuskers near the Hiriwadunna Tank in Habarana is yet unknown.

A carcass of another tusker was found from the same area where carcasses of 4 more tuskers were found yesterday.

An elephant calf was also seen roaming near the dead mother today.

It is suspected that they may have been poisoned but residents in the area say they may have been suffering from an illness.

Meanwhile, Environmentalists say that the law should be strictly enacted against those killing wild elephants by poisoning them.

In the meantime the Army and Wild Life Officials are carrying out a joint operation within the Thambikulama forest to check if any more elephants had died in a similar manner.
