Boycott Urged After Photo of Emaciated Sri Lanka Elephant Emerges


Tourists have been told to boycott elephant attractions in Sri Lanka after viral photos showed a malnourished elephant that was being used in a festival.

The Save Elephant Foundation posted images of the pachyderm to raise awareness about the 70-year-old female’s plight.

“This is Tikiri, a 70-year-old ailing female. She is one of the 60 elephants who must work in the service of the Perahera Festival in Sri Lanka this year,” Lek Chailert, founder of Save Elephant Foundation, wrote on Facebook on Aug. 13.
