TRANSLATION;

Signature Action:
Stop the elephant torture immediately!

Ladies and Gentlemen , With great horror, I have learned that at the Zoo Hannover elephant babies are being tortured to show them in circus-like shows. PETA video recordings are unbearable. I urge you to ban the ill-treatment immediately and draw personal consequences. The responsible persons, who carry out and tolerate this animal cruelty, should be suspended.
Locking elephants into zoos for entertainment purposes has nothing to do with species conservation. I appeal to you to stop the elephant conservation at Hanover Zoo and instead to support projects in Asia and Africa to protect elephants in freedom. The attitude of elephants for show purposes should, in my opinion, be ended.

I'm also so angry about it, dear Animae .... thanks for your mail..... I've already signed all petitions and shared on Twitter last week.
I know, this runs in all zoos - worldwide - only sometimes we see it and sometimes not.

Behind closed doors, zoos only the synonyme for Wildlife trade and mass killings ..... but the most of it, Is not made public.
Animals regularly be fed one another - except the mascot or showpiece animals of a zoo to get the entry fees of the visitors , but the fates of the "no name animals" we never know.
I'm just thinking of Marius .... he would have been killed anyway, but by opening the doors at his killing .... his sad fate was for a short moment in the spotlight of the whole world :-(((

A German scientist has once made a study over several years about zoos - with hidden camera and a few tricks to get informations from coworkers etc. - alarmingly !

The only way to end this cruelty completely is to close all these hell places.

Thank you for this very important petition. I fully support that this inhumane treatment of these precious elephants cease immediately. This news was indeed very disturbing. Please keep us updated. Bless their little hearts poor little babies and their mothers must be so stressed not being able to come their rescue. Elephants are so civilized.

Thank you for taking this deplorable cruel activity out of the cloak of darkness and exposing it into the light of day and spreading the message so expeditiously around the world. May God further give the message global awareness and crack open the hearts of authorities who can immediately stop this evil torture and hold those responsible to fill exposure and restitution. I pray Hannover Zoo is shut down, as well as any other enterprises using daily/hourly or weekly abuse of any ilk in the poor excuse of "prepared entertainment". SUPPORT SANCTUARIES ... NOT ZOOS. signed, shared & spreading the message. Blessings & ty.

It is 2017 and every decent human being knows better. so these peoples moral compass has gone askew and they are a disgrace.❤️❤️
