Emergency for Maya

For several months, One Voice has been fighting for the elephant Maya whose situation is worsening day by day in the circus that is holding her. Following the appeal we filed for her, the Judge ruled in favour of the Prefect and the circus. This decision protects the circus and not the elephant it should normally guarantee safety.

According to them, Maya is doing very well.

It seems obvious to us that by simply looking at the images filmed last September, it is not possible to reach this conclusion: she is an emaciated silhouette, her visible wounds, its position ... According to the specialists, her very fast swaying’s are not only related to her mental suffering. She is but a shadow of an elephant; you cannot doubt for a moment her pain?

True abuse - One Voice does not give up!

Dr. John Knight, an international wildlife veterinarian that we consulted says that Maya's condition is shameful. That she has an urgent need for veterinary and behavioural care and that her chains and her isolation are mistreatment! He goes so far as to ask the question of euthanasia if nothing was to be done to improve Maya's life. One Voice will fight to the end for her. Our legal team is preparing new actions, including appeals as early as November, with new opinions from international experts.

We will never give up on Maya! She is suffering, she needs us all. This is a real case of urgency. How long can she hold on in this circus?

See you tomorrow Saturday for Maya

Together, let us hear about the misery of this elephant with a silent gathering and have the petition signed by as many people as possible to ask the President of the Republic to intervene for her emergency withdrawal from the circus and her transfer to a sanctuary.

La météo prévoit des températures glaciales toute la semaine.

Ralph Falck, qui prétend que Maya fait partie de sa famille, a-t-il prévu un abri chauffé pour elle et ses deux compagnes d'infortune, Nellie et Bridget?

Non à l'euthanasie. Il faut proposer cet animal à une réserve. Paul Birouste.

M Macron pourra t'il,pour une fois, être sensible à la souffrance animale ???
Le cirque a déclaré que l'état de Maya était simplement dû à son âge...ils ont donc reconnu qu'elle n'allait pas très bien. Et, dans ce cas, lui donner une retraite bien méritée dans un sanctuaire semblerait juste une normalité...
