SIGN: Justice for Baby Elephant Cruelly Tied Up And Left to Die


PETITION TARGET: Thailand Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment

In a ruthless display of cruelty, a hunter in Rayon, eastern Thailand, tied a one-month-old elephant up with rope and abandoned the helpless animal to die, slowly and excruciatingly.

By the time villagers found the baby, she was starving and could barely stand. The rope cut so deep into her ankle, the skin was dead and the bone exposed. She had gone days or more without a drop of her mother’s milk. Nobody knows how long she was left to suffer, terrified, alone and hungry.

Rescuers — who named the baby Baitong — cut off her foot in a desperate attempt to stop the infection, and tried every other measure to save the the weak, injured animal. Sadly, nothing could undo the damage, and Baitong died.

Nu senast har kommunen sagt att Trosas mest populära grönsakshandlare och jordgubbskille inte får vara kvar vid torghandeln. Hur Trosa har lyckats klamra sig fast vis en sjätte bästa plats i företagsrankingen begriper nog få.

Our local politicians keep throwing out small businesses from Trosa tourist business. A…

After two decades of drought, Lake Mead in Nevada is just 40 percent ful
