WILD WELFARE RESPONDS TO CLAIMS OF CHAINED ELEPHANT AT SURABAYA ZOO

Wild Welfare responds to reports of a chained elephant at Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia

Wild Welfare is aware of pictures being circulated on social media of a chained young elephant, said to be at Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia. The photo is disturbing and the elephant’s distress obvious.

Wild Welfare regards training techniques involving physical punishment, or training practices that compromise the animal’s physical or behavioural health, development or psychological well-being as completely unacceptable.

Wild Welfare has queried the photograph with the management of Surabaya Zoo. They have pointed out that the photograph is an old one, taken before 2014 and are insistent they no longer train elephants in this manner. We will continue to monitor and work with the key stakeholders, to try and ensure that Surabaya Zoo provides the best standards of care they can.
