She lowers her head, squints her watery eyes, and belts out a penetrating scream while struggling with the enormous cargo she drags behind her. A small man precariously perched on her head, kicks with his bare feet at her ears. He swings a hooked instrument (ankus) at her skull repeatedly. Her forehead is saturated with blood. Again she wails.

From a harness around her neck and back, two long chains pulled taunt disappear into the jungle. Tethered at the other end is a massive fifteen meter long, one meter wide teak log. “She can only pull small logs,” my guide explains, “She is pregnant.”

I feel like throwing up. It seems the abuse just goes on and on and on. I feel very cynical today. Maybe it will be better for the elephants when they have all passed over the Rainbow Bridge.

Thank you, Echo
Bringing attention on abused elephants is important.
People connect animal abuse with small animals like kittens, and often don't realize that animals as big as elephants can be abused.

Please read Echo's newstory. Although this is very difficult reading and will tear your heart and soul apart, it is unforunately what is going on to elephants.
