Tortured for tourism

Many tourists are unaware that elephants performing tricks or giving rides have been stolen from the wild or bred in captivity. That calves have been torn from their mothers, isolated and left without food and water. Or that beatings and intense trauma break their wild spirit and terrify them into obedience.

 

Elephants are powerful, independent animals who are broken by 'the crush', a horrific training regime that brutalises them into submission at a very young age.

Holidays last weeks. Elephant torture can last for 70 years.
