Phajaan, is basically when you chain up an elephant, and stab and whip and punch it for up to a week until it stops reacting and becomes submissive to humans.
People in Thailand may use this, as a submissive elephant is good for making money by letting tourists ride them or forcing them to perform in a circus.
I have previously started a petition about this with around 5,000 signatures, please copy and paste this link into your browser to sign it.
To the Government of Thailand,
The reputation of your country is tarnished by your remarkable lack of respect for animal rights.
Please put this right by introducing a law against Phajaan, and a severe punishment for those who disrespect it.
