Elephant Poached and Disemboweled in Wildlife Sanctuary Deserves Justice

Target: Ohn Win, Minister for the Myanmar’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation

Goal: Punish the poacher who killed and disemboweled a 20-year-old elephant.

An elephant was shot four times and disemboweled in Myanmar’s largest and oldest wildlife sanctuary. The tusks had been removed, indicating that illegal poaching had been the motivation. Demand that the poacher behind this horrific cruelty is brought to justice.

A villager stumbled upon the unfortunate remains of the 20-year-old elephant at Alaungdaw Kathapa National Park, a known ecotourist site, and immediately contacted authorities. An investigation showed that the animal had been shot in the head, and three other times throughout the body, likely while drinking water. The tusks were then removed, along with the toenails and the internal organs.

This park, which covers 160,500 hectares of intact tropical forests and hosts a Buddhist religious heritage site, provides a safe haven for wildlife of many kinds and poaching is strictly prohibited. Sign below and demand that the person behind this horrific cruelty is prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Ohn Win,

A 20-year-old elephant was brutally shot to death and disemboweled in Alaungdaw Kathapa National Park. Investigators believe that the elephant had been drinking water when shot four times, once in the head. The elephant’s tusks, toenails, and internal organs were removed as well, a stronger indicator of illegal poaching.

Poaching is the primary reason for the deaths of thousands of Myanmar’s elephants over the past decades and it continues to be one of the the biggest threats to the species, despite your country’s admirable conservation efforts.

This sanctuary is meant to protect these majestic creatures from poachers and others who wish them harm. Now those protections have been proven inadequate. I demand that you prosecute and punish this poacher, once they are identified, so that other animals will not be at risk.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

      Good idea!

      • I wish the same thing Evelyn. All the cruel humans on this earth need to go. Starting with the cruel fucking chinese who started all this, still eating dogs and wildlife, hope they get wiped out!

  7. Jaime Perez says:

    Greed is such an appalling thing. It drives people to do horrible things. But that is no excuse for what this POS did to the elephant. In a wildlife park no less. The death penalty for this freak.

  8. The monsters that did this should have the same thing done to them. Justice

  9. I agree with other comments…however the poacher(s) need to be found, pull his teeth, fingernails and toenails without any anesthesia, slice their abdomens and leave them in the woods to die

  10. THIS IS A NATIONAL DISGRACE ON ITS FACE, AND ALSO BECAUSE IT HAPPENED IN A “SANCTUARY”!!!!!! THERE ARE NO WORDS IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE TO DESCRIBE THE MUTANTS WHO DID THIS AND NO GREATER DERELICTION OF DUTY THAN WHOEVER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PROTECTING THESE MAGNIFICENT ANIMALS ON A “SANCTUARY”!!!!!!
