Paul McCartney: Rescued Elephant Found Beaten [Video]

Ex-Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney found a miserable elephant named Sunder in Maharashtra, India and tried to rescue it from its pain. Sunder had several wounds and was in a state of exhaustion when it was rehabilitated by Sir Paul some time back. 

But according to the Yahoo! News, the elephant is still not out of trouble, despite Paul McCartney’s tireless efforts to lend the poor animal succor. It was two years ago that Paul discovered the animal that had a gaping hole in place of one eye and various wounded areas on its skin. Its handlers had dealt so brutally with it that it was simply devastated. 

Paul McCartney talked with certain key figures in authority and finally it was decided that the animal would be shifted to a better place. But PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) later on found that the pachyderm was still in a mess. 

Sunder has also been seen "writhing in pain and struggling to stand as the mahout (handler) strikes him repeatedly," said PETA director of veterinary affairs, Dr. Manilal Valliyate. "Sunder visibly recoils in fear from the weapon-wielding mahout, who continues to threaten him with violence after he has stood."

Sunder was shacked up in a large cage for chickens. It was also tied up with chains that were so heavy that it could not go to sleep. The shack was exposed from three sides so that during the day the sun’s sweltering heat baked the elephant’s body and at night the cold wind and freezing temperatures made it shiver. 

Sunder had become so afraid of the mahouts, who were abusing it constantly, that even the slightest movement of its savage and heartless masters caused it to shrink in fear. 

The video clips captured of this elephant in its painful condition by PETA are enough to cause the most stonehearted person to break down in tears of anguish. This cruel treatment of an animal by a society that prides itself on being the only democracy in the region is a sad commentary on its internal state of affairs.
