Scorpion Foundation insisted the Wildlife Authority (BKSDA)
in Yogyakarta to end cruelty to elephants in Gembira Loka zoo, Yogyakarta. In
an email to the head of BKSDA Yogyakarta today (Monday) Scorpion asked the
BKSDA to stop cruelty to elephants in the zoo. Here, elephants are chained by three legs causing them unable to move freely inside their enclosure.
Elephant riding, one of
the most cruel animal attraction in the world, still exists here in Gembira
Loka zoo. Scorpion also requested that this cruel animal attraction is ended.
