In 2012, there are 2000 wild elephants and 4000 captive Elephants in Thailand. The captive Elephants in Thailand are primarily used for tourism but they must be subjugated to abuse in order for them to become docile. The Elephants are beaten, stabbed, and are spiritually broken before they are forced to go to the cities to perform tricks for tourists. The treatment of these elephants reminded me of the movie Dumbo that Professor Frocerro showed us during lecture. The abuse that the carnival owners displayed to dumbo was on par with the abuse that is given to these real life beings.
