It really saddens me to see this. If you know anything about elephants, you will understand how horrible this is. Yes, they are extremely intelligent, and form life-long relationships, and as the saying goes, they never forget. These animals are subjected to inhumane treatment from a very young age. Of course. How do you control an animal this size without first proving who is boss? Animal Basic Training 101.
Most animals, and I mean domestic animals, respond well to kind reinforcement training, and become willing participants in the training itself. Training is essential in the case of pets, and horses.
Many large wild animals tend to respond only to bullying and cruel methods of "control."
I DO hope you stay home. Please do not encourage this animal cruelty.Jun 26, 2011
I am appalled that anybody would harm an animal in this way, just to prove a point for humans. We are all God's creatures. We, as humans, are put on this earth as guardians for the animal kingdom. If we do not watch out for them, who will?Dec 31, 2010
