Jacqueline stands up for ailing elephant

Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has come out in support of an ailing elephant that is at Manila Zoo and has requested the government to shift her to a sanctuary.

On behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia, Jacqueline has sent a letter to William John T. Perera, consulate general of the Philippines in Colombo, Sri Lanka, urging him to do everything that he can to expedite the transfer of the elephant Mali from the inadequate Manila Zoo to a lush sanctuary.  Mali has been confined to a small enclosure at the zoo since she was transferred to Manila 36 years ago and has spent most of that time in solitary confinement.
