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.

This just goes beyond the scope of human decency! Have they no hearts? Shame on them! Baby animals are so vulnerable and sweet- it just boggles the mind that they could treat them in this manner!

I am disgusted with Thailand Been there and thought they were better than this I hope someone makes this treatment of the animals there known to tour operators and holiday companies especially from places like Australia where they have hordes of tourists to Thailand every year Its disgusting this cruelty to the animals so sad Another race of people that obviously dont care about care and respect for living creatures

There is not much good to say about the way Thailand abuses animals both local and foreign, wild and domesticated; so my question is how we could stop people from travelng there?? Yes itīs warm, but there are warm places elsewhere...

S & N I truly do not understand cruelty to anything, be it animal or human! After the catastrophic tsunami and the death of over 250,000 people you would think the people of Thailand would have acquired some empathy. From this sadistic example of cruelty it is obvious they did not. How sad.

There are so many bad things going on in these tourist places and I can't comprehend why people go. If no tourist ever went until they sorted out their animal welfare things would have to improve. There are far too many whose attitude is that they will go once and see for themselves - all these onces add up. Like bullfights - same attitude prevails there.

Goverment of Thailand are you people that backward & stupid.??? These so called animal trainers must be controlled in the first place. Use the iron bull hooks to pork their butts first. Then show & teach them how treat an Animal. That is the ONLY language these people will understand.

If we helped to shut down the plastic surgery industry there would be less american money to promote this cruelty. People should check out the countries they visit and find out if going there is worth the pain inflicted on the helpless, like animals and child prostitutes. READ MORE BOOKS
