India's Celebrity PETA Campaign

Indian actor, Kahul Khanna, campaigns against India's exploitation of elephants. Khanna explains, “These majestic animals belong in the wild, but instead they are locked up like criminals – even though they’ve committed no crime. A more respectful way to observe these animals is through the fascinating wildlife programmes available to everyone on TV.” An elephant requires almost 200 kgs of food – and more than 150 litres of water – every day, yet many owners openly admit that they cannot afford to feed the animals this much food. Insufficient housing and care leads many elephants to severe behavioral disorders and self-mutilation, all in the name of human entertainment. Learn more about helping animals in Indian zoos now.
