I said zoos, not circuses. And videos of third world countries is not indicative on what goes on in AZA accredited zoos in the US.
There is a big difference. Learn it.
As for the elephant training.
I do not personally support animal circuses. I do agree that the trainers are aggressive, but they are aggressive with standard elephant training
It takes a very special person with nerves of steel to handle elephants. You can't show fear. You have to be the master. They had two men handling
about 7 8,000 pounds of smart animals.
