Capturing calf elephants and selling them has been going on for several years. That is forgotten by the public now. But, the threat to baby jumbos in the wild persists.The most recent incident was reported from Yala National Park. Acting on a tip off, Kataragama police and wildlife officers went to ‘Demala Totupala’ on the 07th that a baby elephant was tethered there. But, they found none. In the meantime, wildlife officers were informed by a resident of Menikpuragama on Kataragama-Situlpawwa road that a calf has come to his home. They collected the animal and took it to Eth Athuru Sevana at Udawalawa.
