A baby elephant beaten to the ground in the "training" process of pajan. Capture from the wild often entails slaughtering the mothers and other herd members who attempt to protect their young.

The captured calves are isolated and then forced into a pen and tied with ropes to prevent them moving. They are deprived of water, food and sleep. Terrified, they are brutally, often fatally, beaten with rods, chains or bullhooks (a rod with sharp metal hooks at the striking end) and stabbed with knives and nails. This practice – “pajan” – is designed to break their spirits and brutalise them into submission.
