|Stop Elephant Abuse at Thailand's King's Cup Elephant Polo Tournament|
An eyewitness PETA Asia investigation has revealed extreme abuse of elephants during training for the cruel King's Cup Elephant Polo Tournament in Thailand.
Tourism company Tiger Tops, the organizer of the International Elephant Polo Competition, recently announced that it would stop hosting the event in order to take a stand against cruelty to animals. In 2011, London-based Guinness World Records Ltd. removed all references to elephant polo from the Guinness World Records books because of the abuse that elephants endure for these events. And following discussions with PETA India, Carlsberg Group withdrew its sponsorship of the Polo Cup.
For today's Daily Action, watch PETA's video and join them in urging companies to stop supporting the King's Cup Elephant Polo Tournament.
