It is Elephant Season!
Not for killing them but to dress them up and parade them up and down the streets of Kandy.
Our Colonial forefathers of course shot them.
We don't do that anymore because that amounts to cruelty. Instead we treat them better. We feed them, wash them and when it gets to the Tourist Season we dress them up and parade them.
Anything wrong? Huh?
