After the death of Wawala-deniye Tusker which carried the Casket of the Kandy Temple of the Sacred Tooth for 15 years, the number of tuskers capable of carrying out the noble duty has been reduced to 3 heads.

Officer in charge of the herd of tuskers at the Temple of the Sacred Tooth in Kandy Pradeep Niyanapalawa told our news team that two out of the three present tuskers are foreign donations.

Niyanapalawa also said that under the prevailing situation, finding a tusker to carry the Casket in the Kandy Procession could pose a problem for the organizers in the next couple of years.
