Here is another horrific tale of a poor elephant, stolen from her home in the wild, and made to work in the city, away from her family and all that is natural to her.
A 25-year-old elephant, Laxmi, was knocked down by a speeding water tanker on the Sion-Trombay Road in Mumbai. Laxmi suffered a fracture in her hind leg.
A passerby informed PETA India of the accident and N G Jayasimha, our Coordinator for Campaigns & Legal Affairs, rushed to the spot. It took nearly six hours before veterinarians, the police, fire brigade and locals managed to put Laxmi onto a truck to take her to the BSPCA hospital. She is recuperating now.
