The beautiful island paradise is full of dramatic scenarios that unfold around its giant elephants every day. These giants run into may problems, including human-made and natural terrain-related accidents that lead them to certain critical situations that sometimes cost their own lives. Sri Lanka is an island nation full of Elephants that roam the streets and through village areas freely in many regions of the country.
