Sunder the baby elephant has spent much of his miserable life chained with metal spikes in a dark shed unable to take a step in any direction to escape the abuse his handler regularly inflicted on the lonely animal.

God, please set poor baby Sunder free. He's been yanked away from his Mom to be tortured and forced to wear shackles. I know you love Sunder so please send him to a sanctuary where he can roam free. In Jesus' Name, amen.

You expect better treatment in a temple.
This elephant is said to represent the Hindu god Ganesha, so beating him equates to beating one of their gods!?!
So much suffering inflicted on this poor innocent elephant, why don't the Indian authorities act to stop it?
Saving Sunder is a priority, but what's to stop the temple replacing him with another baby elephant and submitting it to the same treatment? They need a law to put an end to this vile practice once and for all.

Please set him free. This is a terrible form of abuse. Thanks Sir Paul for all your help.
