baby elephant 400KARACHI: Sir Paul McCartney has helped to free an elephant kept chained for seven years in India.

The Beatles legend and actress Pamela Stephenson also pleaded with him to the Indian forest minister Dr Patangrao Kadam for the animal's release.

It was revealed yesterday that 13-year-old elephant “Sunder” will be rescued from his hut in Indian Maharashtra district and moved to a wildlife centre.

“I have seen photographs of young Sunder; the elephant kept alone in a shed at a temple and put in chains with spikes, years of his life have been ruined by keeping him and abusing him in this way,” Sir McCartney had written in a letter.

“Enough is enough. Get Sunder out,” he added.

The “Hey Jude” singer is used to writing notes to express his opinion and use it as a force
for change.
