During a trip to India in 2012, the former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has been moved enough by the sight of a 14 year old elephant named Sunder, abused by his handlers to Jyotiba Temple in South Mumbai, to design a campaign for the release of the animal.

McCartney has made arrangements with the forest department of the State of Maharashtra and Project Elephant, an Indian government, Sunder to switch to a sanctuary. But the investigation of a group for the rights of animals in February found Sunder was simply stuck in a chicken shack , shackled in chains heavy enough to prevent him from lying down to sleep .

Even worse, the investigation by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals captured video footage of the animal, looking malnourished and beaten by his manager. The above photo, exclusive News, showing the conditions of the elephant, chained securely and clearly not at liberty in a sanctuary.

Sunder was also seen” writhing in pain and struggling to stand as the mahout (handler) hits him repeatedly, “said PETA's director of veterinary affairs, Dr. Manilal Valliyate.” Sunder visibly recoils in fear from the mahout armed weapon, which continues to threaten him with violence after it has stopped. "

Sunder, at age 14 he was still a young elephant, was no stranger to abuse. By the time the former Beatle found him, he had spent six years at the temple in the city of Kolhapur. It was covered with scars and had an eye injury and a hole in his ear. A local politician had donated the animal to the temple.

Now, he said PETA , Sunder is languishing without bedding in the cabin, open on three sides in the hot sun during the day and cold at night and winds .

The situation Sunder is ironic in a country where an elephant -headed god Ganesh is worshiped by millions of Hindus, and whose most famous social activist, Mohandas Gandhi once said, "You can judge the morality of a nation by the way in which society treats its animals.”
