Recently, a young elephant, just 18 years of age, collapsed and died after being walked to the point of exhaustion at a tourist trap in Sri Lanka. According to the organization, Moving Animals, the juvenile elephant, who was forced to give rides to visitors on the Sigiriya tourist trail, collapsed and later died after giving back-to-back rides.
It is time for the exploitation of elephants to end. Please add your name to this petition! We will be presenting your signatures to E. Rodney M. Perera, Ambassador of Sri Lanka to the United States, asking for the government to intervene on behalf of exploited elephants in the country.
