Help Sunder, an Elephant Chained and Beaten, Finally Gain Freedom

Sunder, a 14 year–old Indian elephant, is supposed to be living in a sanctuary. Instead, he is being chained and beaten. Undercover video footage just released by PETA India reveals a malnourished–looking Sunder, chained by two legs, writhing in pain and struggling to stand as a mahout (handler) strikes him repeatedly with a wooden pole.

For six years, Sunder was chained and abused at the Jyotiba temple in Kolhapur, India, but the Maharashtra Forest Department and Project Elephant gave orders to retire Sunder to a sanctuary. Instead, Maharashtra Member of Legislative Assembly Vinay Kore, who had given the elephant as a “gift” to the temple, sent him to be chained in an old, dark poultry shed in Warananagar, near where this footage was recorded.

Please use the form HERE to urge authorities to transfer Sunder to the Wildlife SOS elephant centre in Mathura immediately.

    Please help save one of Nature’s Gentle Giants. He deserves our love and respect. NOT this barbaric treatment. Please spread the word.
