They love performing for your amusement

I was planning on visiting the Tiger Temple today, but as I already spend half my life on buses (18-hour trip to Krabi tomorrow - at least the scenery's nice), the six-hour round trip to Kanchanaburi wasn't an appealing prospect (especially when you add a couple more hours for Bangkok traffic).

Luckily, there are other places nearby where you can see distressed animals being mistreated and made to perform for the entertainment of braying crowds, like Samphran Elephant Ground and Zoo.

If you look at their little faces, it's almost as if they understand.

Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo
(Featuring Shitloads of Crocodiles Too)

A childish day out again again again

Many crocodiles

Siamese crocodile's gaping maw

Who are you going to call?
A: It is me

Dave gets his comeuppance for riding the elephant (stop looking like you enjoy it)

They love having numbers tattooed on their heads

They love being sad and alone in their cages

Not happy that this was closed

Elephant Theme Show

They love it when their mates stand on them

They love swinging hoops and banging drums

They love lifting wood

They love doing trunk-stands

They love playing football

They love explosions going off in close proximity to their massive ears

They love being made to fight each other

Crocodile Wrestling Show

They love being aggressively poked with sticks

They love having their jaws forced open

They love being propositioned by men

They love being throat-fisted by men

God, I would so love it if you chomped down now and taught him a lesson.
Do it.

I'm sorry my baht helped to support this crap
