The abuse done to baby elephants torn from their mothers, starved for days and beaten whilst tied up is absolutely appalling! Elephants are gentle animals and very family orientated, to lose their mothers and then be treated like this is dreadful.

My son used to have a documentary on video which portrayed these abusive "training techniques." It is truly horrible and piteous to see, the babies cry and cry. They claim that they must "dominate" them to train them and make them dependent upon human beings. On the flip-side, I have seen baby african elephants who were orphaned due to poaching raised by caring humans along with dogs, gazelles, goats, and even baby rhino's who had suffered the same fate. These babies slept with each other and human babysitters and learned so many verbal instructions it was incredible. They are amazingly smart and sensitive and eager to please. What a difference love makes!
