Help The Abused Elephant at The Bellanwila Temple in Sri Lanka

  • by: Citizens for Elephant Welfare
  • recipient: President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, and Minister of Tourism John Amaratunga

Myan Kumaraya is an elephant that lives at the Bellanwila Buddhist Temple in the Colombo District of Sri Lanka.

He lives his life chained tightly to a tree, as you can see in the picture above. On January 21st, a video surfaced of him being bathed in dirty water and being beaten by his mahout or handler. This is absolutely criminal.

Sign the petition to ask that the government of Sri Lanka remove Miyan Kumar from the Bellanwila Temple and place him in an environment free from abuse.
