COLOMBO (News 1st) – Wildlife officers managed to successfully complete an operation to drive out a group of wild elephants in the Madunagala area in Sooriyawewa, Hambantota.

Elephants regularly roam the Madunagala area due to the availability of food sources. In some instances, their actions have claimed the lives of area residents and caused damage to their properties.

Wildlife officers drove out 4 elephants into the reserve during the operation that was launched at 8 last night. The operation that had been launched by the wildlife officers lasted for a grueling 10 hours.

Earlier this week the Deputy Minister of Wildlife, Palitha Thewarapperuma also got involved in the operation.
