I have another plight for help. If anyone can donate or share this story on their blog (every help is appreciated) we can help save Pang Dow (Miss Star), a disabled elephant from abuse.

"She is in her early twenties and has endured years of abuse. As you can see she is seriously disabled. She was born with this disability, but has worked on the streets, as a trekking elephant and is now used to log. We have to act quickly with this rescue. PLEASE HELP. On the backs of both ears are scars from S shaped hooks she had embedded into them when she was forced to walk the streets. There is another buyer except form BLES: he wants to breed her- this means forced breeding, to put it another way - rape. She is not strong enough to have a male mount her. It might break her back. It might possibly kill her. Can you imagine carrying a calf for 22 months and being heavily disabled????? Her mahout whacked her on the head repeatedly to get her to walk faster."
If there is anyway you can help, please do so as soon as possible... time is running short for this unfortunate ellie.
