An animal pilgrimage commenced in Galgamuwa on July 27.

News 1st’s  provincial correspondent filed footage of this interesting event.

These animals that are being transported in procession from Medagama in Galgamuwa are being taken, not to a national park, but the Ruwanweli Maha Seya and the Jaya Sri Maha Bodhiya.

The pilgrimage is being undertaken on an initiative of a group including Upali Chaminda Rajakaruna.

Chaminda regularly takes animals that are injured in road accidents and gives them medical care.

The animals will be taken to the Ruwanweli Maha Seya and the Jaya Sri Maha Bodhiya, and following the pilgrimage, they will be returned to the jungle.

Wildlife officers from the Galgamuwa Reserve were also present at the occasion.
