This all creatures animal exploitation photo gallery about elephants is being presented to show the public the difference between the cute animals we see in advertising and picture in our minds and the reality that exists in the world.
(Elephant Exploitation - Entertainment - 14) Baby elephants are captured rodeo-style, roped around all four legs, tethered neck-to-neck to an “anchor” elephant, and dragged from their mothers. From this point forward in their lives, every moment, every instinct, and every natural behavior is subjected to suppression and discipline at the whim of the trainer. This and the eight images below were all taken by a former Ringling Bros. employee at Ringling Bros. Center for Elephant Conservation program.
