Man Takes Care of Bijlee the Sick Elephant; Slams Animal Rights Groups

Animals  (tags: wildlife, suffering, rescued, cruelty, animals, animaladvocates, AnimalWelfare )

- 1819 days ago -
Nayak claimed that 11 days ago, when Bijlee had collapsed on the road, he had called up several of prominent animal organisations for help, but got no response. For us, lifting an elephant was truly a mammoth task, but we did it, and she is recovering

I have a qustion but since i can't find a forum to ask it here it is: How exactly these butterfly credits work. For example is care2 partnering with some organization which agree to save one turtle for every 2,000 credits ..and in the end of the month care2 show how much people given their credits for how many turles.Or these people are anyway going to do it and this is just DIDO ?

I, too hope Bijlee will continue to improve and get her strength back.
Kudos to Nayak for his compassion and willingness to help the injured elephant.
Don't blame him for being angry at PETA and the other animal rights group for refusing to help.
Then they have the nerve to want to use Bijlee for publicity purposes?
What a bunch of hypocrites!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree totally with you Linda, thank goodness Nayak came to her aide, and has a right to be mad! I don't understand why they have to wait for more help to remove the maggots from her wound, but then I don't know if that's going to be too difficult for one vet. I am so happy she is improving and finally getting good care. Thanks Jill.

What matters is Bijlee getting better. How many animal rights groups had the equipment needed in the area where she collapsed? Was there anywhere to take her right away? Did the owner refuse to let them take her? All we know is we want her and other elephants to live happy, safe lives.

I'm happy to read that Bijlee is being cared for. It's a sad day when 54+ years on the planet means nothing.
Thanks Jill for the update...last I read she was in need of a sanctuary or shelter. She has much more love to give and many years to give it. :")

Am praying for Biljee - this poor elephant really needs to go to a sanctuary - this is not the life God intended her to have.
