  • Dear readers, I would like to seize the opportunity at this point and get rid a few honest words on the subject of elephants in Thailand and dealing with them in other countries. Right beforehand. I am also opposed to any form of animal cruelty. And I understand the deliberate physical or mental damage to an animal under animal cruelty. It is necessary in this case but put the handling of the animals in the cultural and historical context of Thailand and ask yourself; What was always the elephant in Thailand? He was a REIT and workhorse. For centuries, the elephant was used to transport of goods for the construction of houses and even the war. I like to compare that with the horse in Europe. Same function as the elephant in Thailand had exactly this over the centuries. And before 1ß00 nobody would come years in Germany on the idea to protect horses. They were determined to do the work kept focused and at the end of their life they were perhaps even eaten. Well, maybe not necessarily eating elephants but that makes it clear what is the relationship of human-animal here and in Thailand. Even today, no one complains in Germany about equestrian competitions. There, horses in relatively narrow boxes be trained held and that obstacles to jump. Order police horses. You are paid off despite noise, smoke and fire, not to run, but even right there to race. Before you here so sweeping talks about animal cruelty consider these facts. Of course, also I'm back out to release rather than perform feats elephants. Especially since they are threatened. But also here; There are no more wild horses in Germany. And? someone in Germany roams wild horses out?
