“Several days ago I posted a picture of how baby elephants are trained. Now I want to show the video, of how these gentle sentient beings are ripped from their mothers & forced to endure pain, whilst learning to do tricks for the circus. I have covered this previously the links are at the bottom, worth reading if you want to know more about this”
“There can be no doubt about it, baby & adult elephants are traumatized due to horrific training. They do the tricks because they know, not doing them will end in them being hurt.”
“Ringmasters & those who control the elephants when in the circus ring, entertaining the public…are not what they seem. Most carry what looks like a posh walking stick, but hidden in the end which comes into contact with the elephants, are very sharp nails or other similar objects; purely meant to cause pain!”
“See how Ringling deal with baby elephants“

How Ringling “trains” (BREAKS) baby elephants.
“Now see how young elephants are caught in the wild, they are literally broken, their spirit gone! PLEASE do not support this cruelty by going to circuses or any place an elephant is used for the public’s pleasure…this is real, these elephants hurt, see the pain in their eye’s…remember that the next time you see one of these beautiful giants on display for your enjoyment!”
“Still-nursing baby elephants are literally dragged from their mothers, kicking and screaming. They are immobilized, beaten mercilessly, and gouged with nails for days at a time. These ritualized “training” sessions leave the elephants badly injured, traumatized, or even dead”.
“It’s called the phajaan. Capturing elephants from the wild for this trade often involves killing of mothers and other protective family members with automatic weapons.
Captured calves are subjected to an extremely brutal breaking-in process where they are tied up, confined, starved, beaten and tortured in order to break their spirits. It is estimated that only one in three survive this inhumane “domestication” process.”
“After reading the above, do you now realise, why they go crazy in the circus ring, causing havoc & destruction even killing their handlers…they can only take so much…do not blame them, blame those that abused them!

Here are the images of the training of wild elephants that are caught for the tourist trade. Please remind yourself and tell others that by visiting elephant camps you are supporting this!
Edwin Wiek of the WFFT and Khun Lek (Sangduan Chailert) of ENP are now targeted by the DNP for speaking up about the illegal wild elephant poaching and trade. This video shows what the DNP doesn’t want you to see or know about!
