Tikiri, a 70 year old elephant, collapsed after being extremely malnourished and exhausted. She has been forced to walk with chains around her legs for several miles every night as part of a Sri Lankan festival. In addition to being chained and starving, she has dealt with noise from fireworks, people celebrating, and smoke.😔
There are 60 elephants like this one who are forced to walk and are treated horrendously for . All religions can and should be celebrated, but it shouldn’t involve hurting animals who take part.
has encouraged all to write to the prime minister of Sri Lanka, Ranil Wickremesinghe. His contact information is below. 🐘 #savetheelephants
