Most of India’s elephants have been tortured blind. India has strict animal cruelty laws that prosecute this type of cruelty but govt officials willfully ignoring the crisis out of greed! Everyone from the Chief Minister @CMOKerala down has a stake. #RT #SaveIndiasElephants

 

 

Chained 24/7, India’s festival elephants suffer foot rot from being forced to stand in their own waste. They’re unable to lie down or take 1 step in any direction. Demand @moefcc @CMOKerala @PMOIndia STOP putting profit over the lives of elephants!

 

 

Kerala, India has the most festival elephants. It also has the highest rate of elephant mortality. 275 eles were killed in 2016 alone. 1 expert believes by 2023 all of Kerala’s eles will be dead due to rampant neglect Sign petition! pic.twitter.com/cplAvexuLM https://goo.gl/aDb7zx

IIndian officials are profiting off the torture, exploitation and impending extinction of their country’s elephants. DEMAND @drharshvardhan @moefcc follow Animal Welfare Board of India’s recommendations and ban elephants from performances! https://goo.gl/mJJZ7M https://pic.twitter.com/A8KA4yydtM

 

 

 

During India’s 6 month festival season, elephants are forced to walk miles on scorching tar roads without any food or water.  While shackled they are made to run races or do head-lifting competitions. They are often drugged or fed alcohol to keep them calm. https://pic.twitter.com/JbGESLPUpW

Elephant exploitation BIG BUSINESS in India! Their 3000+ yearly festivals featuring elephants rake in millions of rupees each! Everyone from @PMOIndia down has a stake! GodsInChains HindusGreatShame  https://t.co/CUgP6GKm6K Sign petition: https://goo.gl/aDb7zx

 

 

 

4th elephant this year murdered in t#Kerala India. When elephants become ill, rather than spend $ for medical intervention, they allow them to die so they can collect on insurance claims. Please sign urgent petition! https://goo.gl/aDb7zx 

 

 

 

India’s annual Thrissur Pooram Festival is set to begin May 13. The state of Kerala rakes in huge profits from tourists flocking to the massive festival while elephants pay with their lives. https://pic.twitter.com/ymHVVwN1Wr

Chained 24/7, India’s festival elephants suffer foot rot from being forced to stand in their own urine and excrement. Unable to take 1 step the chains are so tight they become embedded in the skin. Demand officials take action! https://goo.gl/aDb7zx pic.twitter.com/r9Znuj31za

 

 

 

When festival season is over before being returned to their respective temple, these elephants are forced through another round of breaking where they’re corralled in a small enclosure, starved and tortured for several days by a group of men, often drunk.

 

 

 

A CORE tenant of Hinduism is non-violence towards animals. Ganesha is a beloved religious deity. Why aren’t more Hindus standing against this atrocity? Sign urgent petition: https://pic.twitter.com/r9Znuj31za https://goo.gl/aDb7zx

Elephants paraded in festivals as a ‘religious tradition’ is a FLAT OUT LIE. The cruelty began about 80 yrs ago when India’s elite began buying elephants to flaunt their wealth. It’s the antithesis of Hindu’s core tenants and is a stain on the religion. https://pic.twitter.com/JbGESLPUpW

 

 

 

Away from the glitz of the festivals, elephants are tied to 1 spot w chains that eat into their skin and inflict agonizing injuries to their legs; they are “trained” with punishments to hold their heads high. SIGN Petition: https://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/613/761/313/

 

 

 

Leased and subleased, Kerala’s elephants overexploited. Yet @Ganpatsinhv does nothing to protect these so called religious deities. BUT YOU CAN! Sign/share urgent petition: https://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/613/761/313/

 

 

 

DEMAND India govt officials put their greed aside and do what’s right by their nation’s elephants before it’s too late! The abuse of captive elephants and violence towards wild elephants will wipe Indias elephants from existence if immediate action isn’t taken! @NitishKumar @manoharparrikar @moefcc @vijayrupanibjp @rashtrapatibhvn
