Thu, Apr 24, 2014, 11:26 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 24, Colombo: Employees of Sri Lanka's National Zoological Gardens at Dehiwela have called on the authorities to re-commence the elephant dances at the zoo.

The employees have reportedly protested near the zoo calling on the administration to re-commence elephant performances.

The zoo administration halted elephant dances due to the poor health condition of the elephants.

The protesting employees have even blamed the veterinarians in the zoo for the current situation.

The zoo administration has told the media that it could not allow elephant dances to re-commence since the elephants were believed to be infected with tuberculosis (TB).
