Justice for Sunder elephant is being badly abused in Jyotiba Temple, Sunder was being abused by his mahout (or handler), who has gone on the run from the police since the group became involved. Sunder sustained a severe injury to his right eye from being jabbed in it with an ankus (a sharp, hooked metal poker-like weapon) by the mahout. The elephant is also confined to chains with sharp spikes and is kept alone inside a dark shed, in which he cannot take even a single step forward or backward. Sunder is denied all that is natural and important to him and lives in fear. There are lesions all over his body, indicating past beatings by the mahout. The elephant was donated to the temple by Maharashtra Member of the Legislative Assembly Vinay Kore.
A scandal is growing over the way some elephants used in Indian temples to represent the Hindu god Ganesha are being housed and mistreated. Frequently controlled through beatings and prodded and gouged in sensitive areas behind their knees and ears with an ankus, they languish without veterinary care for even serious conditions, sustain leg injuries and are fed unsuitable food. Many elephants at Indian temples also show signs of severe psychological distress, such as swaying, head-bobbing or weaving – behavior not found in healthy elephants in the wild. The lack of exercise and the years spent standing in one position on hard concrete amid their own waste lead to painful and crippling foot ailments and arthritis.
Likewise another elephant abused for joy rides and entertainment with the approval of the Haryana Tourism Corporation Limited at Dabchick tourist complex and resorts at Hodal in Haryana for personnel gain and profit. It would be pertinent to mention here that few years back injured female elephant laxmi was missing from Dabchick, the concerned officials failed to perform their official duties. We asked the CWLW of Haryana to explain the reasons for not searching laxmi missing from Dabchick, like wise another female elephant needs attention in Kurukshetra and she was illegally handed over by the Wildlife Inspector, where as Naresh Kadyan handed over this elephant to the SHO, Butana Police in Karnal.
The UN affiliated OIPA - Indian People for Animals demands immediate strict legal action against all offender's rescuing both abused elephants, forfeit all ownership certificates of captive elephants, ban elephant trading in Punjab, amend their legislation's, rescue and rehabilitation of Sunder at once. How and why MLA allowed to donate Sunder, when jumbo donation and trading is banned in India?
