Neelakandan, a temple elephant in South Indian state of Kerala had been bruised and tortured for 12 years by the temple and Kerala forest authorities. The elephant has been chained for three long years in the name of musth and never given adequate food or medicine. A mahout stabbed in the front leg and the elephant become handicapped for the later life. The iron chain bruised both legs and massive wounds were generated.  A dog catcher accidentally found the pathetic tragedy of this 26 year old young elephant on 4th Dec. 2018 night. The matter was informed with an NGO 'Animal Legal Force Integration' (ALFI). The action was tremendous and based on the media report of this incident, Kerala High Court has taken a suo moto case and ALFI has applied to implead in this case. SOS Wildlife, Agra an NGO managing India's first and largest elephant hospital extended their support and expressed their willingness to undertake the elephant's treatment at their hospital at Agra, North India. But the Kerala Forest objects the move in the High Court and the treatment and future of Neelakandan's life is under Damocles sword  Please sign this petition towards Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to interfere in this bureaucratic and sadistic approach of Kerala Forest Department and Temple authorities.
