There are many people in this world who are fond of animals but if we see the other half, we observe that cruelty towards animals is increasing at an alarming rate. And here’s a video of a temple elephant who is mercilessly being tortured by some pathetic minds.
- The temple elephant is named Karnan.
- In the video we can see that Karnan is being beaten up by mahouts (a person who works with, rides, and tends to an elephant) in Thrissur, Kerala.
- Have a look at the video:
- The video is very disheartening to see and it expectedly did not go down with people.
- Here’s how the people reacted:
- After the video went viral and the right authorities were contacted, Karnan’s case was taken up by ‘Voice for Asian Elephants Society’, an organisation with a mission to protect and conserve endangered Asian elephants.
- A tweet by an IFS officer says that a case has been filed against the owner and the mahouts have been fired for inflicting unimaginable torture on the elephant.
- It also adds that the Forest Department has taken the elephant under its wing.
This needs to stop, high time!
