Dear [name of your MP]

Save The Asian Elephants – new law to protect abused elephants.

I am writing as your constituent to inform you of the appalling abuse and torture of Asian elephants in tourism, a large amount of it advertised and sold in the UK.

Baby elephants are snatched from the wild, their mothers killed who try to protect them, and then the baby is isolated, starved, beaten and stabbed to “break its spirits” for easy commercial exploitation. Many die in the process. Moreover elephants provoked by such abuse regularly attack and maim or kill tourists.

Will you please confirm that you will support Save The Asian Elephants (you can see their tragic short video at www.stae.org) in their campaign for a new UK law to ban the advertising, promotion and sale of unethical Asian elephant related venues and practices.

STAE’s online petition is now the largest for elephants in history, and independent polling by Populus shows almost 90% of Britons support STAE’s policies. But I realise your support as a legislator is essential.

I look forward to hearing from you, thank you.

Yours sincerely
