The elephants show

Elephant shows in Thailand are among the most popular tourists activities, but they are well liked by locals as well. Here people from Nam Tok, a small village 200 km north of Bangkok, are attending a show where elephants dance, play football and let kids ride them on their back. Many people are unaware of the tortures elephants must endure in order to become completely submissive to humans and of the brutal methods used to force them to display unnatural behaviors such as dancing and playing football. Even riding an elephant it's a cruel practice which hurts elephants and is detrimental to their long-term health.
