Despite temptation: REFRAIN FROM RIDING ELEPHANTS!

Jump to last reply

RELOCATION OF 9 ELEPHANTS

In April this year, 10 elephants were captured from the wild by Basil Steyn and taken to Sondelani Ranch to be trained for elephant back safaris. As it is a well known fact that it is very difficult, if not impossible to train a wild elephant without inflicting pain and suffering, the matter was reported to Glynis Vaughan, Chief Inspector of the ZNSPCA.

It was decided to call in South African wildlife specialist, Karen Trendler to assess the condition of the elephants. The ZNSPCA were unable to pay for her travel expenses so we sent out an appeal and thanks to those of you who responded, Karen was able to come to Zimbabwe. She confirmed that there had been cruelty involved in the training of these elephants.
