The Issue

Millions of people want selfies riding elephants, or washing them, or patting their trunks. But according to a study carried out by World Animal Protection (WAP) across Asia this is helping to fuel a rise in elephants captured from the wild and kept for entertainment. The number in Thailand has increased by almost a third. WAP researchers assessed almost 3,000 elephants and found that more than three quarters were living in ‘severely cruel’ conditions. Many were bound with chains and forced to stand on concrete floors close to loud environments.
