Mass peafowl deaths in Polpithigama!

Residents of the Polpithigama, Moragollagama, Thibbatuwewa paddyfield area say that they have been finding dead peafowls in the area for several days.

Noting that the dead peafowls were found in the scrubland adjoining the paddyfields, residents say that their eyes had turned white.

They suspect the peafowls have been poisoned by pesticides used for paddy farming.
