It is not a strange thing to see elephants all around the island and busy streets in the Island of Sri Lanka, but it is sort of rare to see them to see a towering mammoth size elephant alone by the lake. This is also by a fishing village who earns their living by fishing in the lake, so most of these villagers are also stuck behind the fence without the ability to move waters.
Curiosity can lead to a disaster, and that’s why these villagers aren’t actually feeding this elephant. If you feed an elephant at a comfortable place like this, they will eventually come back and get used to it all the time. A few other elephants have already discovered this spot for being a feeding place.
The wildlife officers were fortunate to catch some villagers in action, and they warned about the outcome of such feeding. Yes’ it is a beautiful thing to be kind and feed animals, but these are wild elephants, they do not need human food. All they want is an ample amount of space and water and a lot of green which is given in plenty.
