102 elephants are being forced to give tourists rides at Amer Fort, India. 19 are blind, 10 have tuberculosis – all are suffering. Tell the government of Rajasthan to end this cycle of cruelty
There’s no pride in elephant rides
Elephants at Amer Fort (also known as Amber Fort) in Rajasthan, India, are often controlled with bull hooks which cause wounds and scarring.
They carry heavy seats for tourists to sit on, which aggravates injuries and causes them severe muscle strain.
Yet they are forced to give rides hour after hour.
Day after day.
For years and years.
