They say the back is the most fragile part of an elephant,yet people still ride on elephant for fun. ...

Is it really? I never heard that before. Gonna check into that.
Checked the facts, you seem to know about elephants.
I am me and that is something you will never be, no matter how hard you try!!

Not much.But I really love animals,so I read books and watch videos about them....Elephant is a highly intelligent animal with complicated feelings just like monkeys,I just hope it would not be treated that way,you know,being abused or famished to become tamer.Some of those elephants die from malnutrition,from injury,from sordid surroundings,but there is a great proportion of them die from fatigue.I get that people wanna get richer,but still,there is not much we can do.
I forgot how to forget.

There is another aspect of animal cruelty in Thailand: Thailand is home to hundreds of crocodile famrs. A total of ca. 1.2 million crocodiles are bred and raised in the country. You can imagine how crowded their breeding grounds are... The famrs that raise them do everything from breeding to collecting croc eggs, then raise them. When the crocs are one meter long or more, they are placed in open spaces where paying visitors can see them. Here they get fed chickens.

When they have reached their maximum weight, they get slaughtered, their skins taken to make bags, their meat consumed, blood and gall harvested for "medicinal" purposes.

It is a grisly and disgusting business.
