Muere elefante bebé en Tailandia, luego de que lo obligaron a bailar

TAILANDIA, 23 de mayo, (AlMomentoMX).— Un pequeño elefante llamado Dumbo murió dos semanas después de sufrir fracturas en sus patas, debido a que era obligado a bailar para divertir a los turistas en un zoológico de Phuket, Tailandia.

La asociación Moving Animals relató que el pequeño paquidermo de tan solo tres años vivía en un abandono total, de tal manera que nadie se percató sus lesiones hasta que entró en colapso, porque sus patas se habían roto por completo.

“Estamos devastados al anunciar que “Dumbo” ha fallecido. La campaña que reclamaba su libertad en el zoológico de Phuket reveló su cuerpo esquelético al mundo, lo que generó mucha preocupación ya que estaba enfermo…”

Update: We are devastated to announce that “Dumbo” has passed away. The campaign calling for his freedom from Phuket Zoo revealed his skeletal body to the world, which raised concerns that he was ill: movinganimals.org/savedumbo It now turns out that he had an infection in his digestive tract, and he became so weak that his back legs snapped beneath him. Despite this, the zoo did not realise his legs were broken for three days, until the baby elephant was finally taken to an elephant hospital. . For “Dumbo” to die whilst under the so-called “care” and “treatment” of the zoo shows just how neglected these animals are in captivity. We want to thank everyone for their overwhelming support for “Dumbo”. We hope that “Dumbo” is now finding the peace that he was so cruelly denied in his lifetime, and that his tragic story will urge Thai authorities to finally put an end to outdated animal performances. . 📷 "Dumbo", Phuket Zoo, March 2019. Rest in Peace.

Semanas antes de la muerte del paquidermo, la organización Moving Animals había realizado una petición en línea para liberar a Dumbo, la cual acumuló más de 200 mil firmas. os activistas habían logrado captar en video el maltrato que sufría el pequeño Dumbo. La petición buscaba presionar a las autoridades locales para que sacaran al elefante del zoológico.

La causa de muerte, de acuerdo con los reportes de los veterinarios fue una infección del tracto digestivo que le impedía al cuerpo del animal absorber nutrientes suficientes para mantenerse en pie. Eventualmente sus huesos y músculos se debilitaron y, al ser expuestos a las actividades forzadas, sus extremidades terminaron por romperse. Fracturas que tampoco fueron atendidas.

“Vimos cómo los turistas se reían y tomaban selfies, mientras que el elefante bebé estaba con los ojos cerrados, chupando silenciosamente su trompita”.
