@Regran_ed from @jay_nicole_83 - The elephant looks adorable, but elephants are not naturally inclined to hang out on the beach. As part of the widespread elephant tourism industry that persists in certain parts of Asia, baby elephants are often forced to go into the sea for the amusement of tourists. A nail is typically pierced into the baby elephant’s ear, urging them to move into the salt water. From the perspective of the tourists, it looks as though the elephant is being guided into the sea, but they are in fact being stabbed into submission.
A beach environment is unsuitable for elephants, due to a lack of shaded areas. Salt water is also too abrasive for their sensitive skin. In addition, baby elephants who are put to work in this way have been torn away from their mothers at a very early age, and will likely be forced to work in a trekking camp once they are older. This sweet soul may look as though he is having fun, but the truth behind the elephant tourism industry is anything but.
“Cute” elephants on social media can be seen painting, swaying to music, frolicking at the beach, or in unexpected places behaving in unexpected ways. Don’t ignore the “elephant in the room!” Chances are very high the elephants were under duress, in a state of great depression, or shown purely for the amusement of tourists to earn the trainer money. Fact check the behavior and the source of the image. This is NOT about the elephant’s “joy.” Baby elephants belong with their mother’s not entertaining humans.
Whenever videos or pictures of wild animals in unnatural situations are shared, it should always be accompanied by a critical analysis of why they are harmful to the animals involved. In this way, they can be used as educational tools, helping others to recognize harmful pictures (and speak out against them) whenever they see them in future. #elephantslavery#elephantpainting#elephantride#dontrideelephants#babyelephants#elephantmassage#elephanttricks#elephantselfie#captivitykills
