DON’T FORGET THE ELEPHANTS

Re: “Protecting the pachyderm”, (Life, Aug 9).

Somewhere, buried in the back pages, is a small article that describes the plight of Thai elephants. Sadly, these giant icons of this wonderful country are crying out for help.

I can say that there are thousands of people who would assist. But so far it seems there is no one they can trust or rely upon. Sure, there are places and countries that are in dire need. But somehow that old saying “You can judge a country by the way it treats its animals”, keeps nagging at me.
