    A wild elephant with gunshot injuries is walking on the banks of the Yalpatha tank on the borders of the Lahugala National Park. The residents of the area said they have informed the Wildlife Conservation Department. They said the jumbo plodding along the bank in pain would soon die of starvation and thirst if immediate treatment was not provided. Meanwhile Officer in Charge of the Lahugala Wildlife Conservation Office H.M.Gajaweera said they provided treatment to the elephant that was lying on the banks of Mahawewa tank about a month ago and released it to the jungle. He said the injuries had infected again and a team of Veterinary Surgeons from Ampara was attending on the elephant for further treatment. He was hopeful that the jumbo would recover soon.
