EWN on Instagram@Regrann from @stae_elephants - How do you make the largest land animal on earth carry tourists, paint pictures and perform humiliating and unnatural acts for entertainment? You break it. You destroy his mind, body and spirit until he loses the will to live and no longer fights back. He accepts his fate and obeys orders to avoid the beatings and deprivation that come with being a captive Asian elephant used in tourism. Please back STAE’s calls to ABTA and its members for a ban on unethical Asian elephant holidays and sign our petition at www.stae.org #elephants, #asianelephants, #wildlife #endangeredspecies #animalwelfare #animalcruelty #saynotoelephantrides #refusetoride
