Oban Times unmasks elephant campaigner

MASKED AND UNMASKED: Kay Lang staged silent protests against cruelty to elephants.

MANY people have been mystified over the last six weeks to see someone wearing an elephant mask, sitting silently in random spots throughout Oban, Connel, Appin, Crianlarich and Fort William in all weathers, holding a placard reading ‘Kerala Suffering Elephants’.

Drivers and pedestrians have been doing double takes, questioning whether they have seen correctly – was that an elephant? Who is that? Are there elephants suffering on Kerrera?’

Well, finally, following a tip-off, The Oban Times unmasked the west coast’s undercover elephant protestor.

She is Kay Lang, a 45-year old South African who lives in Dunbeg.

Kay, a podiatrist and palliative care worker, was stirred into action a year ago when she stumbled on the Kerala Suffering Elephants Facebook page which is ‘dedicated to spreading awareness about the atrocities meted out to the captive elephants in Kerala’.
