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.
DO IT



I'm sorry my baht helped to support this crap
