Heartbreaking events are unfolding on the recent tragic fate of more than 30 baby elephants torn from the wild in Zimbabwe that have been ripped from their families and flown to China. Where they will suffer a lifetime in captivity.
Zimbabwe's rush was to export these baby elephants blatantly defying a recent ban on trading of wild elephants which would have taken into effect on November 26, 2019.
It doesn't end there 2 of these elephants are destined to go to Pakistan to Lahore zoo or Peshawar Zoo. Though news broke that the Punjab Wildlife Department announced cancelling the tender for importing an elephant https://tribune.com.pk/story/2081891/1-tender-import-exotic-animals-revoked-punjab/ .
We have reason to believe that there are loopholes in the system to get around this and its very possible that the baby elephants that were recently transported to China 2 of them were destined for Pakistan.
Here are the reasons why no more elephants should be imported
Presently 2021 there are 4 elephants in Pakistan who are kept in cruel conditions
Please sign this petition asking the Ministry of Climate change to stop any import for more elephants to Pakistan. The world is changing and zoo's are phasing out elephant exhibits recognizing that elephants can never be properly housed in captivity even in the best conditions they suffer.
Do not allow anymore elephants to suffer in the incompetent hands of mahouts whose barbaric tactics are not only archaic, but continue to cause the suffering of these sentiment beings and eventually an early death.
