Our reporter in Tissamaharama indicated that an elephant that had been shot in the leg has fallen into the Samurdhi Lake in Weerawila.

The animal had fallen into the same lake on a previous occasion and was tended to by wildlife officials, rescued and released into the wild.

However, this time around the animal has been suffering in the lake for several days while authorities have turned a blind eye.

Residents in the area stated that poachers had inhumanely cut off a portion of the animal’s tail as well.

They have also requested wildlife officials to treat the animal immediately.
