Neelakantan, an elephant belonging to the shastamcota temple in Kollam District, Kerala. He has been suffering from serious issue to his left forelimb, which has manifested in chronic swelling and in spite of the temple having a proper stable/pen, he has been taken to the rear of the temple and tethered out in the open, exposed to all the elements, all on the advise of the advisory committee of the temple. They are not giving permission for taking him to the vet college hospital in Thrissur!

Dear signers,

Thanks to your signatures Neelankantan has been treated for his wounds! He has gained weight and he looks much better! Unfortunately he will not be sent to a sanctuary! He remains in the temple!
