We have exciting news about Sunder, an abused baby elephant
who has captured the hearts of people worldwide, including Paul McCartney. Thanks
to the ceaseless work of PETA India and PETA-supported Animal Rahat, Indian officials
today issued an order that Sunder—who is covered with wounds from beatings and whose eye was injured with a bullhook—is to be taken from the temple where he has been held captive in spiked chains and
placed in the custody of the forestry department.
Sunder will be transferred to a forest camp, and from there,
hopefully he can be moved to a sanctuary. Thanks to everyone who responded to
PETA’s action alert urging the forest minister to take action! PETA India’s
chief veterinarian, Dr. Manilal Valliyate, and PETA India’s staff on the ground
there won’t stop pushing until Sunder is with a herd and free from abuse!
