Paul McCartney Frees Captive Elephant in India

A young abused elephant in India was recently freed thanks to McCartney and a throng of other advocates.

After hearing about the neglected and shackled elephant Sunder in a temple shed in Maharashtra, India, Paul McCartney wrote a letter on the elephant’s behalf to the Indian Forest Minister asking for his release. “I have seen photographs of young Sunder, the elephant kept alone in a shed at Jyotiba Temple and put in chains and spikes … I most respectfully call on you … to get Sunder out,” McCartney states. Following the musician, other petitioners came together to support Sunder’s freedom. This week, the activists’ efforts proved successful, as it was announced that Sunder would be transported to a wildlife refuge where he will be able to live in peace.
