Dumbo ~ Chiang Mai


Another elephant shot from the Mae Tang Park I took a few weeks back.
This was part of the elephant show for tourists, where each mahout and his elephant are introduced to the public (each have a name) and then proceed in entertaining the public with football, painting or dancing.

This shot reminded me of Dumbo following his mom. It was cute!

Such a sad image. Zoos should educate people about animals while simultaneously caring for them and helping them prosper. I don't like shows that exploit animals for what humans consider funny. You really captured a strong emotion for me.

Thank you very much Ray and I fully agree with you.
95% of elephants in Thailand are used for entertainment purpose, sometimes in shady conditions.
