Germany: elephants are still tormented in the Hannover zoo


In the spring of 2017, PETA published images that showed how baby elephants in the Hannover Adventure Zoo have been beaten and tormented so that they can perform circus-like tricks for visitors. The zookeepers use the elephant hook – a stick with a pointed metal hook – to make the animals docile. PETA subsequently filed criminal charges.

During the ongoing investigation, an eyewitness told us about further maltreatment of elephants at the Hannover Zoo. She also watched the elephants being beaten arbitrarily and violently by the zookeepers. Here is an excerpt from her report:

“The orderlies entered the enclosure and immediately there was stress among the animals. What I saw then still makes me very angry and incredibly sad today. […] I saw a zoo keeper directly approach an elephant and forcefully (he hit his arm) rammed the hook into his skin. “



Peta has forwarded the eyewitness’s observations to the relevant prosecutor and filed a criminal complaint.

What happened after that?

Summer 2018: Attitude without elephant hook begins
In the summer of 2018, the Zoo Hannover has begun with provisional measures to switch to “protected contact” in which the elephants are no longer beaten with the elephant hook.
However, the zoo also sent a family of five Asian elephants to the Belgian zoo, Pairi Daiza, to make way for the enclosure.
For show performances and daily riding, the zoo in Brussels trains the elephants with the elephant hook – so they are exposed to further maltreatment there.

And we mean: The Hannover “Adventure” Zoo received grants worth three million euros from the city in 2010. New data on state subsidies are not available.
One thing is certain: this prison is (also) supported by the state.
The director must go – and the perpetrators must be punished. Because these do not work as a passion, they torture with enthusiasm.

To the pain of the animals comes the fear. The elephants are helplessly at the mercy of the psychopaths who torture them. The adult elephants can only watch their children being beaten. It stresses the life in the zoo anyway extremely. While hiking in freedom up to 80 kilometers a day, they are locked in these prisons in the smallest of spaces.
There are a few stupid parents who think that they can teach their children the life of the wild animals, when they visit with them the inmates and look into what a miserable life we ​​humans have condemned these animals.

The only animal that causes the captivity of other animals and still finds it great, is the human being!
