Apparently we weren’t the only ones reporting on the abuse of Tai the elephant, one of the main characters from the movie Water for Elephants. Because of the video, animal rights activists and viewers are outraged (including Demi Moore) and the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) is stepping up and seeking justice for any and all elephants abused in the State of California.
According to ALDF, while certain acts are legal, the state of California does have laws that prohibit specific types of animal cruelty. The ALDF is taking this law seriously, and is now offering a $10,000 reward for any information that may lead them to anyone who abuses elephants, specifically during the production of any filming.
If you have witnessed any abuse of an elephant on a California set, ALDF asks that you contact them (anonymity optional) at 707-795-2533, x1035, or e-mail ElephantAbuse@aldf.org. The Huffington Post reports the specifics on their website on what the illegal acts include.
