Injured elephant suffers for 6 days with no vet

An injured wild elephant has been lying on the banks of the Palamoteikulama tank in Vavuniya for six days with a veterinarian yet to make a visit.

Residents in the area say that they have informed wildlife authorities of the injured animal's plight for days.

Although wildlife officials have come to take a look, the veterinarian officer in charge of the Northern province is yet to visit.
