FOUR REASONS TO CRY: RESCUED ELEPHANTS BEING FORCED BACK INTO CIRCUS
Shri. Devendra Fadnavis

Mr Vikas Deshmukh, IAS
District Collector Pune
On May 27, 2016, four abused elephants who were blind, chained, injured, and forced to perform illegally were rescued in Pune by your Government. For this action, we applaud your leadership and compassion.
Regretfully, I have just heard that the Precious Four elephants rescued from Rambo Circus have been ordered to go back and resume a life in chains. On behalf of these four elephants. I feel great outrage on this miscarriage of justice. These four elephants, who have survived decades of cruelty, were finally allowed a few weeks of freedom and peace after their rescue. For the first time they received veterinary care, baths, and nutritious food. Nothing could be more brutal and cruel than sending these elephants back to a life of misery and toil in the circus. For such cruelty to prevail in India -- the land of ahimsa and compassion -- would be seen as shameful internationally.
I implore you to use your authority under Wildlife Protection Act of 1972 and other relevant laws to take action on behalf of the Precious Four elephants. On behalf of Lord Ganesh, please show mercy.
