Of touristy ‘Elephant Camps’, elephant training and ‘disciplining’ rogue elephants. This time in Sakrebailu, Shimoga, Karnataka

Posted on | July 13, 2014 | 4 Comments

Elephants in captivity are not a good thing. Elephants in zoos. Elephants in temples. Elephants in ‘Elephants in Elephant camps’. Elephants are slaves and captive labor at best. Beggars at worst. But they don’t just become it. They’re trained. They’re broken. And the Govt does it in its watch. And you know about the ‘rogue’ elephants that are caught and they put to task! Well they just disappear looks like. India needs only happy well adjusted pachyderms. India is still the land of elephants and snake charmers in the Incredible India brochures, right?

The following is an account of 2 individuals travelling together to the Sakrebailu Elephant (training camp). This one is 300 Kms. from Bengaluru, 12 Km from Shimoga. And Karanataka is dotted with many – in Dubare, Chamarajanagar and Nagarhole. The latter 3 are considered more ‘upmarket’ - Sakrebailu more approachable and more importantly is the one where you’re allowed to ‘interact’ with the elephants. As the Central Govt website says for Sakrebailu:

“On the way to Thirthahalli from Shimoga, 14 kms away from the city you can hear elephants reciting their lessons.  Yes its not a joke its fact that you can find here many elephants being trained by training professionals.  Elephant from the adjoining forests bathe at this spot before they re-enter their forest abode. Every morning these majestic creatures waddle down to waters and after playfully cleansed their bodies and satiated their thirst, they leave the waters before the rays of the sun get stronger. They are off to deal with their day’s routine only to return the following day.  To catch a glimpse of these mammoths at play in the waters, get there before 9 a.m.”

Idyllic surroundings no doubt. In the shrinking land of elephant – a slice of paradise. Kaustubh Dharkar and Naina Athale (both from Mumbai) went to Shakrebailu on 22 June 2014 to soak in the paradise.

But before we continue please watch this video. No please. Its important that you watch it and not turn your eyes away. Tomorrow this is the elephant you will give money to at a temple, or ride at a camp like this or come to Karnataka or Kerala or any of the ‘elephant states’ seeing it in a slick brochure. The video is shaky because it was unexpected and Kaustubh Dharkar’s hand was shaky.

Illegal Slaughter house in Rajamudry, East Godavari District run with the knowledge & complicity of the Corporation. Report by Gopal R Surabathula & Animal Rescue Org

Illegal cattle slaughter is illegal but rampant in India with Kerala & West Bengal as its sole ‘legal’ outposts. Earlier we’d covered cattle slaughter in Andhra Pradesh – and this is yet another report on slaughter continuing unabated despite a High Court Order.

And actually engaged senior 'professionals' in 'animal welfare' to approach VoSD on the basis of this allegations - with ...
