Animal rights group People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) recently took to Twitter to thank comedian Kapil Sharma for helping save an elephant from abuse. A court in Chhatarpur has ruled that Lakshmi, known as “the leanest elephant in India,” of the SOS Elephant Wildlife Conservation and Care Center (ECCC) in Mathura, should be permanently rehabilitated. PETA tweeted, “Thanks again for helping Elephant Sunder. We have great news for another elephant! As a result of PETA India’s efforts, “The thinnest elephant in the country,” Lakshmi, has been given the green light by a court to be definitively saved from abuse. ”The actor retweeted the tweet and said it was was great news. good news. so proud of you guys. God bless you. “

Last year, Kapil Sharma started a petition on change.org titled “Justice for our Voiceless Soul” to save elephants from abuse. Sundar was one of those elephants who was rescued from a temple in Kolhapur in Maharashtra. In 2015, Kapil Sharma was named “Indian Person of the Year by PETA” for his dedication to promoting dog adoption in animal shelters or on the streets and helping animals in other ways. The host of the Kapil Sharma Show said, “I am delighted to hear that I am known to help animals. I love making people laugh, but what we should all know is that dog and cat roaming isn’t about laughing. Anyone who has the time, resources and patience to welcome a pet into our homes should adopt a dog or cat in need from shelters or from the streets. “

According to the PETA website, Lakshmi suffered from chronic arthritis and joint deformities, with hip abscesses. She was in excruciating pain and was weakened from the long-term deprivation of food and water. The animal was used for begging. During the first week of December, following complaints by PETA India and local activists, the forestry department registered a preliminary report of violation under section 42 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972, against Lakshmi’s guard for illegally detaining her and mistreating her for begging. The Animal Welfare Board of India and the Project Elephant division of the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change have called on the forestry department to take immediate action to rehabilitate the elephant. The court ordered that she be sent to the ECCC based on Wildlife SOS ‘willingness to take care of her.
