Comments / pictures


At the Moonlight Circus, the inspection team learnt that an elephant calf with the circus named Suman had not been registered with the AWBI, even though the circus was exhibiting the animal. The unregistered calf was born on 27 September 2011.



A local court in Ajmer on Monday ruled that a 10-year-old female elephant calf, rescued from illegal custody, be handed over to the state wildlife department...

The calf was found in Ajmer without documents required under the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972 and shifted her to a state-run facility according to the Central Zoo Authority Guidelines, said NG Jayasimha, managing director of Humane Society International.

The order came on a case against accused, Rajendra Kumar Sharma, who was keeping the elephant illegally.

“The accused applied to the forest department for a transport permit to take Suman back to Ajmer and the department came to know that the calf was in their possession and rescued her,” said Jayasmiha.

He said Sharma had transported Suman from Ajmer to Jaipur on May 22 and an FIR was lodged against him under the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972 on May 23. On May 25, forest department officials seized Suman from the accused and took her into their custody.

The forest department officials then filed a case of Hunting and other offences under the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972 before the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Ajmer, on Saturday.
