A close friend of mine are going to Haytai Thailand for holiday. She is at Thailand right now, She thought she could have a perfect holiday at there. But, last night after had a dinner with her family, they walk around the town and she saw several people with a baby elephant. According to her, a 3 years old baby elephant called as Mario. The daily routine of Mario is he need to walk around the town and ask for some money from the people to buy the sugarcane from his keeper to keep him feeded. So, if people did not buy the sugarcane from the keeper, Mario will starve and he will not be fed.
Every day Mario need to 'work' to avoid him starve and at the same time will give some money for the keeper. Mario also will be rided if there are people ask for it. People will riding him around the town. According to her, Mario will be caned by the keeper if he refuse to 'work'. I think we need to end this crap that make the animal suffer just to attraction for tourism.
Please together we end the animal suffers and violence. They have their right to live as they need to. Please everyone.
