Off late elephants can be seen roaming about in several nodes of the city. Our weekend feature is crafted with the message – For the sake of these gigantic creatures, lets strive to provide elephants currently in captivity with a more humane existence. You might get excited to look at the sight of the elephant in your neighborhood but you should no that he is not happy. Blaring horns, crowded roads, congested traffic is definitely hell for elephants who would rather prefer living in natural forests. Nearly all-captive elephants are captured in the wild – this elephant is no different. Taken from their families and homeland, elephants in captivity suffer a life of chronic physical ailments, social deprivation, emotional starvation, and premature death. Since many of their captivators still use cruel and outdated circus-style training-beating elephants with bull-hooks and keeping them chained for long hours. And all this is done so that when their captivators take them to the city, these proud and sensitive animals are used to make money from the public who are either excited to see elephants or revere it as their favorite God. Many would remember the sight of elephants going on a rampage. This is because elephants go insane very quickly in captivity. Something similar cannot be ruled out here too. You can make a difference to the lives of elephants by not paying his captivator and even informing PETA i.e. the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals wherever you spot elephants roaming in public places. And make a difference to the life of atleast a few tortured elephants. Any amount of awareness about such causes is a blessing in disguise.
