  • Just know if you decide to go to slonike. Elephant one is always looking for something to eat-stretched his trunk to the tourists in the hope of fruits, fumbling around the Earth during and after the sinking. The feeling that it is not being fed. Our elephant is not very keen on this day be a clown for tourists. Walked reluctantly. The driver sat on his head and constantly kicked ears. Behind the other guy shelestel package. Another elephant was less lucky-he was hit with a wooden mallet for tendons of hind legs. Then our teams took out a formidable stick with a metal hook, which, thank God, use. Area for walks the elephants don't look great. There was a sense that we are engaged in torture over these huge animals, which put on the stream for the amusement of tourists. In the end only saw that the corral for elephants "parking" is embellished with barbed wire. This elephant to exactly get up in the allotted space for landing tourists. But when that animal is large, and Hutch is narrow, the elephant is still natknjotsja on these thorns ... Everyone decides for himself. I am more for nothing. If you want to mingle with the elephants, it is better to go to State konservaciornnye centres, where they are exonerated and truly care about them.
