A baby elephant appears to have been severely burned after it was struck with a flaming bar of tar in West Bengal. An award-winning photograph captures the exact moment when a mob of "jeering men" threw the balls of tar and firecrackers at the calf...

signed. There are proper ways to discourage elephants from raiding crops- like planting chili peppers or raising bees by the crops, or burning pots of chili peppers , or even setting off noisy firecrackers . But lobbing balls of burning tar is horribly cruel and vindictive.

thank you for this news. everybody involved deserves the death penalty. they'll keep doing what they're doing. they don't care. they have no common sense - that it's their fault to begin with that these poor elephants are losing their habitat. elephants are attacking them, because of how evil, and sadistic they are. to them. if these idiotic freaks would act like humans - instead of non-humans, they could come up with ideas for the elephants, and them to live together in peace.

Angela thank you for caring2share Freya's news/petition for justice for the baby elephant set on fire.
This has to be treated as a criminal case and those perpetrators involved must go to prison.
Additionally there has to be legislation ensure the criminal code is actively prosecuting those involved.

Action completed. The barbaric actions of some humans against innocent species is so disturbing, so unacceptable, so immoral that it makes me absolutely heartbroken and quite frankly angry. If I ever witnessed such an atrocity against an innocent animal I would risk my life and/or face the consequences in order to save it. That easy. Thanks Angela!
