Kindly refer to the CZA reply with AWBI recognition & MoEF Project Elephant
guidelines for care & management of captive elephants - instructions dated 8-1-2008,
whereas performance age of animals has been passed, which are replaced with new
animals, additional animals never been disclosed keeping in view AWBI confirmation as

cognizable offenses instead different sections of IPC & Wildlife Protection Act, 1972.

approval of CZA & AWBI, concealing facts with all concerned Authorities, whereas CZA
reported that 10 Dog Common, 3 Elephant Indian, 2 Goat Common, 7 Horse & 8 Mcaw,
vide its letter dated 14-9-2012, keeping in view above said animals either dead or not
capable to perform due to old age because every animals have age span, deep investigation
required as animals replaced with another unregistered animals, which is an offense as
breaching of trust, cheating enforcement agencies, bluffing them with wrong information’s.
3. As per MoEF Project Elephant guidelines for care & management of captive elephants -
instructions dated 8-1-2008, after every 5 years, ownership of elephants be renewed,
keeping in view all legal provisions, which are not followed.
