Justice for Beloved Elephant Murdered for His Tusks

yongki-elephant

Target: Indonesian Attorney-General HM Prasetyo

Goal: Severely punish the hunter who killed Yongki, the endangered Sumatran elephant, and ripped out his tusks.

Just when Cecil the lion’s murder is beginning to blow over, yet another amazing and innocent creature has been murdered. Yongki, an endangered Sumatran elephant, who helped patrol Indonesian jungles to protect threatened habitats has been murdered for his tusks.

He was found dead with his tusks cut off and with bloody stumps in their place in a national park camp where he lived on the island of Sumatra. Yongki was a sweet creature who worked well with elephant keepers in the national park by being involved in patrols that help reduce tensions of wild elephants stampeding through villages. Yongki’s patrolling also helped rangers look out for illegal logging and poaching that threaten the Indonesian rainforests.

The Sumatran elephants are endangered, with estimates that there are less than 3,000 left in the wild. The creatures are a target of poachers because of their tusks, which hold a high value because of their use in traditional Chinese medicine. Its not yet known how Yongki was murdered, but his tongue was blue when he was found, leading officials to believe he may have been poisoned.

Some online activists are calling for enforcing life sentences for hunters of legally protected animals. Regardless, when Yongki’s killer is found, he or she must face the consequences. Urge officials to punish this murderer under the full extent of the law for his or her horrific crime against an innocent animal.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney-General HM Prasetyo,

Yongki, an endangered Sumatran elephant, has been murdered for his tusks. To make the story even sadder, Yongki helped officials to protect villages from wild elephants and to look out for illegal logging and poaching going on in the Indonesian rain forests.

Not only that, but Sumatran elephants are endangered, with 3,000 or less left in the wild. At this rate, we cannot afford to lose them, even just one. It’s ridiculous that someone would commit such a heinous crime over tusks.

I am deeply saddened by the murder of this sweet, helpful creature and hope that his murderer sees justice. I urge you to punish this murderer under the full extent of the law for their horrific crime against an innocent animal.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I’m sick and tired to see how this hunters and poachers get away with their horrible crimes and nothing is been done to stop this. All life is precious and humans must learn to respect and cherish all creatures. This scumbags should be sentenced to life in prison or to death. This is the least that could be done.

  8. Lisbeth Alvarado Sanchez says:

    Rest in peace beautiful Yongki. My heart is broken.

  9. matin kilner says:

    a disgraceful state of affairs, what a species we are, destruction of our world that gives us life and sustainability is on the brink of collapse, why do we let this happen, im ashamed to be human, long live the animals, they deserve better…!

  10. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser
