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 - Labor - 02) A mahout (elephant trainer) uses a sharp stick to jab the elephant in the mouth. Since the elephant had refused to move in the direction the mahout wanted, a quick jab in the soft tissue of the elephant's mouth was "necessary" to force the elephant to move.
