URGENT! Help Us Rescue Bullied Elephant Jeymalyatha

 

In a heart-wrenching video, elephant Jeymalyatha can be heard screaming in pain while being severely beaten by a mahout associated with the Srivilliputhur Nachiyar Thirukovil temple. 

 

                                                     

 

The temple has reportedly kept Jeymalyatha in captivity illegally for more than a decade, as she was never returned to the Assam forest department after an initial six-month lease expired. The first video showed her being beaten at a rejuvenation camp and led Tamil Nadu’s Hindu Religious & Charitable Endowments Department to suspend the two mahouts involved – but they were immediately released on bail.

Following a complaint from PETA India to the Virudhunagar police and the Animal Welfare Board of India, a first information report has been registered against the mahout of the Srivilliputhur Nachiyar Thirukovil temple who was caught beating Jeymalyatha. A copy of the wildlife offence report reportedly filed by the Tamil Nadu forest department is still awaited by PETA India.

You can help, too!

Act now to request that the Assam and Tamil Nadu governments work together to seize and rehabilitate Jeymalyatha at a sanctuary, where she can live the rest of her life unchained and in the company of other elephants.
