Stop moving 4 elephants from Assam to Gujarat just to be part of a religious procession
This petition made change with 1,794 supporters!
A four day journey in a non AC iron box with no scope of movement in this heat wave from Assam to Gujarat only to be surrounded by chaos and drums and crowds standing in the sun with decorations all around you, if you make it out alive from the journey. Sounds comfy? I'm sure not.
4 healthy elephants will have to go through this ordeal to be part of a "prestigious" religious procession. All this because Gujarat lost 3 of their own pachyderms to old age. PLEASE MAKE THE AUTHORITIES SEE SENSE. People have lost their lives in trains, with ventilation, in shorter journey because of this heat. According to the specific rules of transportation of pachyderms, no elephant can be made to walk for more than 30km (18 miles) at a stretch or transported for more than six hours in one go.
Please put yourself in their place and just try to imagine standing in your own shit and piss for 4 days to just be eye candy. Please sign this petition so that the government knows that we, the people, value a life more than a show.
