This video was taken by a tourist who was getting a ride on the back of the mother of the little elephant, in Thailand, Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens, this past week.
Animals never deserved our cruelty, especially when someone is exploiting them for their own need, which is the most selfish thing ever. There are horrifying stories about the abuse and cruelty of these animals. Last week a video came out on the internet, in which a baby elephant is tied to its mother with a rope, and it collapses on the ground in Thailand, the video went viral!
A tourist shot the video, who is working as a teacher at Myanmar. The tourist was having a ride on the back of the mother elephant, with some other tourists at the Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens in Pattaya, somewhere in Eastern Thailand.
This baby elephant who is not older than a year, which is tied to its mother while she is giving rides to tourists, collapsed on the ground in front of many people, from exhaustion. In the video you can see the baby elephant with a rope around its neck tied to its mother, collapsing on the ground because of the hot temperatures and sun, which reach more than 40 degrees Celsius. Tourists said that the baby elephant looked very tired.
After a moment, the baby elephant gets up and hurries to keep up with the older elephants. The anonymous tourist who would not be distinguished said that the baby elephant was obviously on its last holds of strength. It isn’t clear how long these elephants were out in the sun while taking travelers and tourists on a ride at the Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens.
The tourist who was with friends on a vacation stated:
There are a lot more child elephants tied with their mom strolling around with travelers at their backs getting a charge out of under the warmth of the sun while these elephants are enduring.
This one infant elephant was so depleted, and you can see the mother ameliorating and urging her to stand. I’m simply worried for the elephants and need to guarantee their welfare is appropriately dealt with.
When confronted to about the incident, a representative for the Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens wouldn’t believe that the elephant was mistreated and exhausted.
The spokesman reported:
The majority of the elephants are healthy and treated great. In the event that there is a problem they are treated by vets. All of the baby elephants in here are healthy as well.
The occurrence comes in the wake of another baby elephant dying in Phuket in southern Thailand about one month ago. The baby elephant named Dumbo, had a skeletal frame after that, and the doctors saw that he had broken its back while he was struggling to lift himself up.
The elephant was only three years old, and he was suffering from an infection and he became very weak. When Dumbo was taken to a vet clinic in Krabi, he didn’t have much left to live, and he died on April 20th.
