A new method used to chase away wild elephants

Steps have been taken to launch a pilot project to use bees to chase away wild elephants in the Badulla District.

Our correspondent stated that this decision was taken at a meeting of the District Coordinating Committee held at the Badulla District Secretariat yesterday with the representatives of farmers' organizations to discuss the elephant issue.

It has been decided to install beehives on the poles of the places where the elephant fences have been erected.

As a first step, bees will be deployed on the elephant fence constructed from Buddhan Kotte to Minipe Ela.

In the Badulla district, nine people have been killed and more than 9 injured in wild elephant attacks so far this year.

More than Rs. 75 million has been paid as compensation.
