At least 13 people were injured after an elephant went on a rampage in Sri Lanka on Saturday.

The rampage occurred during the Ruhunu Kataragama Mahadevala procession in Kataragama town.

Hospital sources told Daily Mirror that the injured have been admitted to the Kataragama Hospital, with no critical patients among them.

A video has gone viral where pilgrims are seen trying to flee the spot as the animals go on a rampage.

Elephants, considered very sacred in the nation, are often seen colourfully dressed during religious ceremonies in the South Asian country.

According to reports, elephant rampages during these events are also common.
