Paul McCarney, it isn't enough to protest cruelty with a letter. Use your resources to stop it.

 A 14-year-old elephant whose abuse outside a Hindu temple inspired a protest by Paul McCartney is still living in horrific conditions, with shackles around his legs and regular beatings.

The Indian government had ordered the elephant, named Sunder, returned to the wild after McCartney highlighted the animal's plight during a 2012 trip to India.

Instead, a local politician took Sunder home and shackled him outside a poultry shed, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said. The group also released a video that it says shows Sunder in December, writhing in pain and struggling to stand as a handler strikes him with a pole.

"I have seen photographs of young Sunder, the elephant kept alone in a shed at Jyotiba Temple and put in chains with spikes," McCartney wrote. "... I appeal to you to do what is right here and get Sunder post-haste to rehabilitation in the forest."

We petition McCartney to use his vast resources to make the owner of the elephant an offer he can't refuse. Then pay to have the elephant transported to the elephant sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee. Doing so would make a powerful statement for the welfare of all animals.
