How about the 'rightful owners' spend 50 years in chains.

Why don't they just pay off the owners?  It's always amazing how much pain and suffering can be soothed with money in court cases.

I was just wondering what it might take to pay these soulless f*ckers off without going to court.
Also, how long does it take, in India, to transfer the title on an elephant?

The funny thing about laws is how they are interpreted.  Hell, I'd love to live in the country that the People's Republic of China is on paper.  In reality, I'm glad I have a blue passport.

If we are lucky they will be stomped to death trying to put it back in chains.

I think we should change his name to Stampy for a day, then reintroduce the owners.

VIN placement wasn't standardized 50 years ago so you have to crawl around checking the frame.  It's usually near the engine.

Shoot and sell off the whiny elephant piece by piece. Shoot the former owner through both ankles and leave him to fend for himself. Problem solved.

In chains. In pillories. In a public square in downtown Seattle. Naked.

A special picture for the people claiming to own this elephant:

If the elephant's protectors are smart and the Indian courts are anything like America's, they'll deliberately draw this out as long as possible. Elephants don't live much longer than fifty years. If it takes ten or more years of litigation and huge fees for the "rightful" owners to get the elephant back, other exploiters will get a strong message.
 
2014-08-31 08:38:28 PM  
There's a .1% chance he'll be returned. Too much international attention for this guy. And rightly so, but way too late.

To be fair, if they installed toilets in the slums then everyone would want to live there.

They used the elephant to beg for money. The animal cruelty people, quite literally, took the family's main bread winner. India is a nasty, dirty, cruel place. It's not unknown for poor families to intentionally harm their own children to improve their begging.

Do the elephant a favor, get it out of that sinkhole.

This. Seriously, start a kickstarter, raise the cash, pay them off, anything else left over goes to taking care of the elephant for the rest of it's life.

Don't get mad, get smart.

Raju arrived at Wildlife SOS's Elephant Conservation and Care Center, in Mathura, India, two months ago, where he joined five female elephants.

Awwwww yeah.
Got fifty years to make up for.

I'll donate $5 to make that happen.

Actually I think we should give them the opportunity to win their elephant back.  All they have to do is guess which of the three doors their elephant is behind.  Hint it's not the one with the Salt Water Crocodile behind it. Nor the one with the Siberian Tiger. Or the one with the Rocko the Klown.
 
2014-08-31 09:00:29 PM  
Hell no, don't pay the owners off! If you do, other people will start poaching elephants, hoping for huge payoffs! Instead, draw the court battle out for the rest of the elephant's natural life. Hit those inhumane farkers right in their wallets.

It is not Rocko, it is Ouchy the Clown.

Nope. A nice, short hearing in which it is determined that the owners stole a natural resource from the people of India and are required to furnish restitution for 50 years worth of theft and abuse of said resource.

A very, very high amount of "restitution." Something that takes them about 50 years to work off.

Then announce an amnesty for all other "owners" who surrender their elephants to proper authorities within 30 days. With the caveat of life imprisonment at hard labor if anyone simply kills or otherwise harms the elephant instead of surrendering it.

As beggars in India, that will be about $3.50.

It's funny that two of the most dangerous animals in Africa are two animals that have a reputation of being sort of big, docile lummoxes.  An angry elephant is bad, but an angry hippo -- and they are always angry, and territorial as hell -- will fark your shiat up without a second thought.  In fact, hippos kill more humans in Africa than any other animal.
