[sherry castillero] - This makes me SICK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[ian cormack] - HOW LONG IS THIS GOING TO GO ON PETA ..???? You have been posting these pictures forever ....
[marion friedl] - Makes me sick, too! Signed and shared. :-(
[nola steele] - Signed. Disgraceful, and in a TEMPLE.
[kalpana pot] - There are some people who claim the story is fake but if it really isn't I am ashamed that this is happening in a temple! I am a devout Hindu and I don't know any true Hindu who would do this!
[lohit nath] - Can anyone tell me the name and location of this temple where sunder is kept????
[suzann estabrook brooke] - Signed. I also thought India respected elephants. Guess we're wrong.
[daphne thurlow] - Why is she still suffering, after that petition??? didi they ignore it??
[emma fetches] - peta - you have been posting this for a while now - why havent you done anything to help this poor animal
[michelle howell] - Signed & shared!
[pam smith] - Just seen update and this poor animal is still being beaten. Why with all the petitions hasn't Sunders been rescued. Poor poor baby.
[angel seraphina] - I'm so frustrated with this now as every organisation has this as part of their blog n people write the same thing but two months on here we are again. ACT on it don't put it up as another blog!!!
[deborah metzger] - signed and shared in fury!
[lisa gregory] - PETA has been writing and "petitioning" for Sunder for a long time now.....how come nothing has been done???Except repost the plight of this poor animal........
[trisha farkas] - is there any info on the poor souls status ? this is an old post.
[despina stamatakis dipaola] - How can we HELP?
[monic landry] - I thought Indians love their elephants. Boy would I like to put those 2 in chains and beat them up - sick people - do not deserve to live - signed the petition
[dhaivat bhatt] - Seriously? This sucks. I mean I am an Indian and in particular I am follower of Hinduism! Stop them before they move forward to tarnish reputation of holy religion Hindu. >_<
[jenn tucker] - What kind of friggen temple allows this.
[harim dieffenbacher] - Please stop this cruelty, no more, killers
[glenys laird] - Why do people keep calling these perpetrators "pigs"? For goodness' sake, pigs have the most kind, gentle nature - much better than we humans.
[nicola rosa lionetti] - So although the Maharashtra Forest Department and Project Elephant GAVE ORDERS to retire Sunder to a sanctuary, Vinay Kore, just ignored that? How are they able to ignore orders and nothing be done about it. I don't understand how this is STILL being allowed to happen? Sunder was given as a 'gift' a gift for what? to be used as a beating object? Do these people get pleasure beating and chaining this beautiful elephant. How does anyone justify keeping an elephant that's supposed to symbolize strength, good fortune and good luck, in a dark poultry shed and chained. NO animal should ever be chained for anything. Considering elephants are an important cultural icon in India and are extremely valuable, therefore they should and must be treasured, preserved and protected, just as a jewel would be NOT treated the way Sunder is being treated.
[sherra franklin] - what kind of temple beats elephants?
[annelie engelmann] - Well Peta what are you going to do about it. I keep signing my name but does it help? How about you just buy this elephant from them?
[patti heasley] - i thought temples were suppose be like holy to them?????
[michelle youknowme] - Help him!!! What can we do?
[monica romine] - Its truly sad disturbing to see such utter cruelty to an animal with such kindness and love. Elephants are my mothers favorite animal because of the way they morn one another when they pass away. Truly one of gods best creations!
[rheba aralar] - Sending to Animal Rescue Corps asking to forward to international animal welfare orgs
[cj jackson] - St. Francis of Assisi Lover of all Creation Prayer for Sick Animals: Heavenly Father, you created all things for your glory and made us stewards of these creatures.

I cant go to India at the moment but even when I tell people I know who live in India to help they wont do anything because they say they hate elephants because they're dangerous! I'm so sick to my stomach! The only ones who are dangerous are the humans!

[pattie golden dianara crawford] - WHY HAS THIS GONE ON FOR SOOOO LONG?!?!? This just hurts my heart.......

[lisset penton] - I thought animals were sacred to them? Don't get this
[sheliah holcomb] - I wish she would get up one day and stomp these abusers to death. she probably wishes she were dead.
[mary jewell] - Well, why don't you post some useful information like who to write and protest to and some putative economic actions. facebook changes nothing without actionable steps. This is horrendous and shameful. But that doesn't help the animal.
[yolande webber] - I would love to get my hands on those motherfuckers and beat them to death see how they like it!!
[cosmo pup] - I want to beat the little man with a sledge hammer. Give him a taste of his own med.

[rebecca brown] - OK Peta! Get your asses in there. STOP THE MADNESS!!!!
[tejal chauhan] - I am honestly so ashamed to be a citizen of this country, not that I was ever proud....this is nothing compared to the other barbaric cruelty happening. I just hope that more than getting this to ppl you can get the person in charge and send someone to take an action and also tell the useless government of this country that these innocent animals are lives and they have rights and they have more people then they can ever imagine to support these animals.

[mohd fauzan hazri] - Im quite confuse, why did these indians bathing and beating this elephant at the same time? Or is it that guy with stick is doing something else, but the photographer take the pic from certain angle to make him looks like he's beating the elephant?

[mohd fauzan hazri] - Why PETA doesnt rescue these animal even after petition has been signed? Maybe PETA objective is to attract and convert people to veganism and not rescuing animal in foreign country? And these pictures is a mere tools to achieve their objective. And if they did something about it, and these things has been stop, then PETA has no more picture to be posted to encourage people to become vegan?

[mary rocco] - Shameful! A disgrace to India.
[gary jenkinson] - Sometimes we forget that so much individual suffering goes on, whether it be human or animal, when the news channels are flooded with stories of war and disaster.
Unfortunately this suffering goes on and on without end. Life is indeed random and cruel and without any divine being looking out for us or any other species for that matter.
We have to do better than this. Much better if humanity is ever going to survive and prosper. We need to treat animals with much more respect, as a world without them would be a sterile man made Hell. The problem is, we deep down know this but move on blinkered, with millions of people living in ignorance, lack of basic education and deluded with superstition.
As for these asshole trainers/owners, they need whipping everyday too.
[cooking stories] - fact is that we can not talk about ALL indians cause of this photograph...India is a big country....here are 2 people and 1 animal. Another fact is that this image should not exist...and 2 people are treating this animal really bad.
