PLEASE SIGN: Justice for Baby Elephant Cruelly Tied Up And Left to Die
PETITION TARGET: Thailand Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment
In a ruthless display of cruelty, a hunter in Rayon, eastern Thailand, tied a one-month-old elephant up with rope and abandoned the helpless animal to die, slowly and excruciatingly.
By the time villagers found the baby, she was starving and could barely stand. The rope cut so deep into her ankle, the skin was dead and the bone exposed. She had gone days or more without a drop of her mother’s milk. Nobody knows how long she was left to suffer, terrified, alone and hungry.
Rescuers — who named the baby Baitong — cut off her foot in a desperate attempt to stop the infection, and tried every other measure to save the weak, injured animal. Sadly, nothing could undo the damage, and Baitong died.
Such brutal treatment of an animal is unacceptable, and authorities must make it clear that committing acts of cruelty and murder against elephants will not be tolerated. Elephants are an endangered species that must be protected — and neither hunters nor anyone else should get away with such vile acts of abuse.
Sign this petition to urge officials of Thailand to investigate this case thoroughly and prosecute all parties involved in the torture and death of this beautiful baby elephant.
This is a very important petition to urge the European Commission to stop the use of high risk fuels like palm oil in the EU that destroy our forests and kill orangutans.
The EU subsidises it as “green biodiesel” even though it’s actually three times worse for climate change than regular diesel because of the deforestation it causes.
We can protect the orangutans and the rainforest from palm oil destruction – but we have to act now. Time is running out! If the Commission does not carry out the commitments made by the EU parliament by February 1, 2019, orangutans may soon become extinct and more of our rainforests will be gone.
At the end of the video a small child is crying and is shocked by the animation.
Its young mother turns the stroller in the opposite direction and tries to keep her crying child away from the “cruel” reality.
In reality they have been in trucks for days!
There is no place to lie. Those who become tired and lie down risk becoming depressed by their fellow sufferers. During the entire transport they are not supplied, drinking nipples are not accessible and this is not provided. This is not possible with the number of animals.
They are transported for hours or days with unknown animals, receive neither food nor water, they are exposed to heat and cold, unknown persons and a strange environment.
They suffer from exhaustion, pain, injuries and have to endure noise, vibration and odor (ammonia, exhaust fumes, gasoline).
Now, and as early as possible teach your child that ethic never stops with living beings who can feel. A living being that has the ability to feel subjective, to suffer, to rejoice, or to be sad, is a free being that has a value system and the right to life.
Like your crying child.
