Garbage problem and increasing amounts of environmental pollution by plastic bags, polythene has increased the number of casualties with the elephant population all around the world. These elephants will later develop infections and many other problems including having their stomachs filled and also blocked with polythene bags and plastics.
This footage is to show the responsible and unethical handling of garbage dumping sites that are scattered throughout the island that poses a lot of threats to animals around the conserved zones they live in. Elephants are well known to roam away from an area to area, and they love to move to these sites to eat everything they can.
We have previously covered a few videos about elephants that have fallen sick with such garbage eating habits and plastic, polythene infections. Many of them have also died after not having a way to recover. Share this and show the world about these unethical, unresponsible, cheap practices that harm the environment and the humble giants that roam in it.
Sri Lanka and Elephants.
In the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, Elephants roam the streets and through village areas freely in many regions of the country. The small island nation is full of elephants that are loved by most of the inhabitants of the island. Most educated in the country are continually fighting corruption and animal abuse especially towards the treasures that elephants are to the state as Sri Lankan elephants are known as the largest and the strongest among Asian elephants.
However, around farming villages where elephants raid crops, many conflicts are happening that have caused casualties to both sides. They have set a lot of fences and electric fences with barriers around many villages and farmlands around national parks and many massive forest reserves. These elephants often run into traps and wells placed along farms for water supply.
