THE NSPCA report at the centre of a fresh spat between the organisation and the Knysna Elephant Park delves into the conditions of the captive animals.
Entitled “The welfare status of elephants in captivity in South Africa”, the 32-page document includes a breakdown of how many captive elephants there are in the country.
It also provides the ages, names and origins of the elephants.
The document looks at how many people have been killed or injured by captive elephants.
It says between 2001 and last year, six people were killed and 11 injured.
The report also consists of passages of text focusing on elephant-related topics, including that they are not domesticated animals.
It includes a section on its website.
The top of each page says the contents may not be used without written permission from the national council of SPCAs.
