Trainers Cleared in Beating of Dunda at Wild Animal Park

July 09, 1988

If keepers involved in Dunda's "discipline" report "nausea and sleeplessness as a result of their participation" in her punishment, it seems to indicate that human conscience has deemed the action immoral. It therefore doesn't matter how many commissions find the animal's treatment legitimate. To the contrary, if indeed these are accepted practices for training elephants, perhaps they shouldn't be. Rules can be changed if they are wrong.
