PETITION TARGET: Chitwan National Park, Chitwan Police Department
A captive elephant in Chitwan, Nepal, had 6 inches of her trunk cut off with a razor-sharp weapon in the middle of the night, leaving the animal in excruciating pain.
The 45-year-old elephant named Chanchalkali, who had been “tamed” for the tourist industry, is now having a hard time drinking, since she is unable to use her trunk, according to news reports.
Whoever committed this horrific act was clearly trying to kill the elephant, as the damaged part could not be fixed, and elephant experts are unsure of how to best treat her injury, according to news reports.
Whoever harmed this defenseless elephant must be held fully accountable for their actions.
Sign our petition urging the Chitwan National Park and the Chitwan Police Department to find the individual(s) accountable and forward any applicable charges to a prosecutor.
And please remember to never visit any place that exploits elephants or any other animal for entertainment, as these animals are often worked tirelessly and deprived of everything natural and important to them.
