Elephants are smart, social animals who need to roam freely in nature. Temples are not forests, and they are not appropriate homes for elephants. Urging the authorities to enforce the decision of the Forest Minister of Maharashtra, so Sunder

The 13-year-old elephant is Sunder years at Jyotiba temple in Kolhapur, Maharashtra, held in chains. Although the Forest Minister of Maharashtra, Dr. Patangrao Kadam, a few weeks ago and arranged for his release PETA India had found a suitable sanctuary in Karnataka for the animal, the decision was not implemented so far. Blame is obviously a senior executive of the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Ministry of Forestry), Shri Naqvi member has not really afford to follow orders of the Minister, but this obviously does not implement. It is currently believed that Sunder is the temple of authority hidden in a dark and well guarded chicken coop behind a milk factory.

It's terrible that Paul McCartney and Pam Anderson claimed that Sunder had been released, where in fact Suder has NOT been released at all. I don't hear Paul and Pam now, they could afford a million or two and buy Sunders release easily. Instead he's still in chains ! So very sad

It's well over 6 months since it was stated that elephant Sunder would be freed, but still the poor darling elephant is captive in chains. Paul McCartney and Pamela Anderson you said you would free her, why havnt you seen this through so that she can live free in a sanctuary, please do it !
