Jakarta – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia is offering up to 10,000,000 IDR (just over $1,000 US) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for killing three Sumatran elephants, a critically endangered species, near Tesso Nilo National Park in Riau province. The elephants are believed to have been poisoned.

"These cowardly killers need to be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law", says PETA Asia Vice-President Jason Baker. "If poisoned, these elephants would have had a slow and agonizing death."
