Sri Lanka imposes a prohibition of “drunk driving” elephants : In order to strengthen elephant protection, Sri Lanka has imposed a prohibition of elephant owners in the country to submit them to hard treatments, and also to drink animal conduct.
It is a common practice for people, especially the Buddhist monks in Sri Lanka, to possess and show elephants. However, rumors of ill-treatment and cruelty to elephants are widespread in the country.
The new law charges that each domestic elephant will have its own photo identity card with a TDN timbre on it.
Regulation for work elephants
Baby elephants can no longer be separated from their mothers and owners are prohibited to use them for work. For forced elephants, night work is forbidden and they can not be made to work for four hours.
“The person who owns or custody of such elephants ensures that the Mahout (rider) would not consume any alcohol or harmful medication by employing,” said the Minister of Wildlife of the country.
The owners are required to submit their elephants for medical check every six months. In case of non-compliance with the regulations, elephant owners can cope with a three-year sentence in prison and also, have their elephants withdrawn in the care of the state.
Animal rights activists have long criticized the government on the claim that over the last 15 years more than 40 elephant babies have been stolen in national wildlife park more\
