What instigated a protest and now this petition was the unnatural death of an elephant at the Islamabad Zoo. A female elephant named Saheli died at the young age of 22 because she was not looked after.
A minor foot injury coupled with neglect and improper medical treatment led to her falling to the ground and dying a few days later. Vets were not contacted till after her health has deteriorated to a point of no return. Let’s not let the loss of her life be in vain.
The Islamabad Zoo has on many occasions been the target of controversy. Animals have mysteriously disappeared or died, or been sold off to private collectors. This must be stopped.
We're demanding for:
Zoo Management should be rotated
Citizens should be given more control over what goes on at the zoo. There should be a body that monitors all activity and accepts complains
Better treatment of the remaining male elephant. REMOVE HIS CHAINS
Transparent management and accountability for animal cruelty
Updates on animal count and health status on a social platform such as Facebook
Enquiry into all animal disappearances
Let’s not let this be forgotten. Let’s not let this happens again. It’s up to us to protect these helpless animals. Take some time out of your daily routine for this cause and sign the petition.
