Elephant Rides

Jump to last reply

Rather than hijack other threads, I thought I'd start a new one to get answers from those of you that discourage people from riding elephants.

I'd like to better understand: Why are so many of you against riding African elephants but not Asian elephants? There's lots of tourist activities that include riding Asian elephants as well.

I don't know much about horses, but when I went on a riding vacation I was shocked to realise that horses do not enjoy being ridden. Why don't people protest against horse rides? Because they're domesticated? But if they were domesticated they wouldn't have to be broken in, would they?

Why put any animal to work for us humans?
