A wildlife protection group has started a campaign to rescue a six-year-old female elephant calf from alleged animal traffickers in Rajasthan and reunite her with her sister at a conservation and care centre in Mathura.
"Purchase and sale of elephant is banned under the Indian law. Also, no elephant can be moved from one state to another without a valid transit permit from both states. But the calf was moved to Rajasthan and is now under the possession of animal traffickers," it said.
"Suman is a helpless elephant calf separated from her mother. We are reaching out to our supporters and elephant lovers across the world to stand strong for Suman and ensure her future is safe with us and that she is reunited with her sister, Peanut," said Kartick Satyanarayan, co-founder and CEO of Wildlife SOS.
