Our holiday in Sri Lanka in 2006.
All these elephants were wounded by land mines during the many years of fighting between the Sri Lankan forces and the Tamil Tigers. We saw some with only three legs. If you have a closer look the elephant which is about to get off the rock at the back has only half a front left leg. It sure was a very sad sight.
