In this July 5, 2016 photo, a tamed elephant rests in a pool of water by a road in Baduraliya, a village outside Colombo, Sri Lanka.

For Buddhists, who make up 70 percent of the island's 20 million population, elephants are believed to have been a servant of the Buddha and even a previous incarnation of the holy man himself.
