    Paul McCartney wants to help a maltreated and tortured elephant. After seeing two videos of an animal named Jeymalyatha being beaten by traffickers in India, the musician joined PETA India in sending a letter to the Indian government asking for help for the pachyderm.

    “I have viewed India as a spiritual place since my travels in the 1960s,” Macca wrote in the letter, according to Billboard. “I was struck by the love for animals that is deeply rooted in Indian culture. I know India worships elephants, its national animal, but animal cruelty happens everywhere, even in India. What reflects a country’s values ​​is how that cruelty is dealt with

    The Beatle continued: “I hope you will agree that Jeymalyatha has suffered more than enough and that she deserves to spend the rest of her time on this earth in peace, away from her abusive trainers and in the healing environment of her conspecifics.”

    Elephant was also abused during inspection

    Working with PETA, McCartney is trying to persuade government officials in the country to take the elephant to a sanctuary immediately. In support, PETA’s Indian office also filed a veterinary inspection report, noting that Jeymalyatha’s current handler used forceps on her skin in front of the inspectors.

    The 80-year-old has been an animal rights activist and pioneer of the vegetarian movement for many years. He combined his guest appearance on the “Simpsons” in the 90s with a request that Simpsons daughter Lisa should become a vegetarian. McCartney now describes himself as a vegan. Most recently, he has worked with PETA on several occasions to draw attention to the cruel conditions of animal slaughter.
