Ty Cal. Have signed an earlier petition for Sunder. . .will sign as many as necessary. . .heart and hugs for Sunder. . .

"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace." —Albert Schweitzer, The Philosophy of Civilization

"The indifference, callousness and contempt that so many people exhibit toward animals is evil first because it results in great suffering in animals, and second because it results in an incalculably great impoverishment of the human spirit. All education should be directed toward the refinement of the individual's sensibilities in relation not only to one's fellow humans everywhere, but to all things whatsoever." ―Ashley Montagu

I think of myself in sharp skin piercing chains around my ankle, unable to take even on step, consistently beaten until my skin tore open, standing in my own feces and urine,hungry all the time, sick all the time and thirsty...AND I CAN'T STAND IT FOR EVEN ONE SECOND ! WHY HAVEN'T AUTHORITIES RUSHED IN WITH SIRENS BLOWING, IN EMERGENCY MODE AND STOPPED THIS HORROR??? THIS IS GOING ON IN WAY MORE THAN JUST ONE PLACE. THESE ELEPHANTS ARE IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION. Has anyone seen the PETA films of "The Crush"...baby elephants isolated and tied, beaten, hooked, not fed , for WEEEKS AND WEEKS AND WEEKS UNTIL THEIR SPIRITS ARE CRUSHED...and this is accepted in India.... as the typical traditional training...Oh God, stop this...
