@Regranned from @a_lallie_ - What is this nonsense? 😒 .
Elephants can’t catch a break. Poached for their tusks, shot for ‘sport’ by trophy hunters, suffering in zoo prisons, being hit by trains, being attacked by humans in conflict over land and crops, being forced to give people cruel #ElephantRides, being forced to entertain ignorant tourists by playing basketball, painting pictures, giving massages in cruel tourist traps, being forced to perform in animal circuses etc
Remember if you see elephants in unnatural settings doing unnatural things like this, there is always underlying abuse. The elephants are deprived of food, spend their lives in chains and get routinely tortured and beaten with bullhooks in a process called ‘the crush’ or #Phajaan designed to crush their spirits and force them to obey their human slave masters.
I can see from the red capes in this video that it says #NongnoochGardenResort, which is in Thailand. Boycott this place! Or better still, go there and protest outside to help get it shut down as these abused elephants belong in a sanctuary.
