The Government would conduct a proper investigation into the incident, where a leopard had been killed by a group of youth in Kilinochchi recently, Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella said yesterday.

He told this in response to a question raised by JVP MP Nalinda Jayatissa as to what action would be taken against the youths who had brutally killed a leopard.

The incident came to light following the video went viral on social media during the last few days.

MP Jayatissa reminded that legal action was taken against a group of youths who killed an eagle, based on some photos posted on Facebook.

Former Wildlife Minister Gamini Jayawickrama Perera said it was a shameful act committed by the youths adding that it was a disgrace to the humankind.

He said stern action should be taken against the culprits. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    What action? Give them a award like the government going to pay LTTEers who killed both Sinhalese and innocent Tamils?

    All brutalities should be investigated, regardless of whether it is humans or animals who are the victims!

    They should be punished in a way where they realize the level of crime committed. Make them work at the wild life protection department.
