Elephants can't wait
Amer Fort is a tourist attraction in India where sick, blind, and suffering elephants are forced to give tourists rides hour after hour. Day after day. For years and years.
Sign the petition right now and tell the Rajasthan Government you think it’s unacceptable that the elephants of Amer Fort are:
- Only calves when they are torn from their mothers and forced to go through a horrific training process known as 'the crush' which breaks the animal into submission.
- Forced to carry the weight of tourists for many hours every day, causing skin and muscle injuries.
- Controlled with bull hooks which cause painful wounds and scarring.
- Chained to one spot when not being forced to carry tourists, causing repetitive strain injuries and painful foot problems.
A “once-in-a-lifetime” experience for you is a lifetime of suffering for them. Everyday, these elephants are forced to walk over hot concrete and difficult cobblestones that damage their feet. Living with painful injuries that are hidden behind the cloak of their decoration. When they are not giving tourists rides, these gentle giants are cruelly chained in isolated pens and unable to socialize, graze or move freely causing them immense stress.
You have the power to help end their suffering and stop the cruel exploitation of these elephants. Raise your voice. Sign the petition now.
