The first time I've seen and fed an elephant was decades ago, so I was really happy when I finally had a chance to see lots of them again upclose and feed them!
But that happy feeling ended when their elephant show started.. Elephants are forced to do tricks to entertain people and make money. Their trainors were holding a sharp hammer like object to poke it on those pitty gentle giants if they won't follow their trainor's order. Elephants were forced to carry people over and over again, everyday(!) and not even sure how many times a day! I don't even know why some people enjoy those things. What's more saddening is the baby elephants do it too! I felt very terrible after seeing that show and just wanna hug each one of them. Outside you can see the elephant "stables" which are really small and certainly are not appropriate for these type of animal. What's worse is they had their legs chained!! I just hope these animal abuse should stop or atleast they give the right benefits especially good spacious shelter for those poor working animals..
