    A trench is being dug around a rubbish dump in Sri Lanka to try and stop elephants from scavenging for food among mounds of plastic waste. Elephants regularly swarm to the landfill site near a wildlife sanctuary in the eastern town of Ampara. Along with food scraps, they consume plastic, which slowly kills them, officials say.
