“It felt like an experience you just had to try. The elephants can also play basketball as well though, which looks really cool.” Igor said

He further added, “We were there on our honeymoon. And it was definitely an experience we would go back and have again. The elephants can also play basketball, which looks really cool.”

This whole concept of elephant massage sounds like an appealing and fun activity. However, this isn’t as appealing as it looks. There is a harsh reality behind these elephant massages.

The innocent creatures which are vastly used in vacation destinations are often stolen from their mothers at a young age. After the separation, they are subjected to techniques intended to prepare their spirits.

The techniques used to pound their spirits are known as “preparation pulverize,” or “elephant pound,”. The young elephants are subjected to starvation, lack of sleep and thirst. Furthermore, it even leads them to cut or harm elephants to secure a little enclosure.

Eventually, because of this prolonged torture, the elephants give up and do what their trailers want. That is the reason the elephants do whatever their trainers want.

Voyagers may think exercises like riding an elephant do no damage. Be that as it may, the merciless truth is that breaking these creatures’ spirits to the point that they enable people to interface with them includes brutality every step of the way. said Dr. Jan Schmidt, a senior veterinary counselor at World Animal Protection.

If you indeed want to appreciate elephants without contributing to animals cruelty then you should rather visit national sanctuaries and parks.
