  • We have visited this care station for bull elephant. From German or European. View a borderline experience, sure. Is secure our image of animal husbandry a total different as in India. These elephants were formerly owned by the maharajahs, today are they trained and trained for dei many religious and traditional parades. For the largest Bull, you must pay 100,000 rupees a day to rent. You will have transported on trucks to the site, as we have seen. That the bulls are chained has the reason that bull elephant in the wild are absolute solitary and himself would attack here thus each other. The animals are fed daily 5km, washed, maintained and fed. You are outdoors under the shade-giving trees. Sick animals are separated in an extra ward. Every boy has at least a lifelong painter and Director. The elephants are something as old as the people. Photographing is now banned in the indoor area. Sure the reasons of the negative press.
