Human Activity Is Making Elephants’ Lives A Tᴇʀʀɪʙʟᴇ Mɪsᴇʀʏ?

Elephants are not designed to be ridden. But, before I go into detail on this subject, I'd want to share a story from my youth.

My mother used to tell me that I used to ride an elephant when I was a baby. But I couldn’t recall the last time I rode an elephant. So, when I was a kid, and we all know how much kids love animals, I used to treasure the fact that I had the opportunity to ride an elephant. The elephant is a massive animal that is adored by many. I wanted to ride the elephant again at the moment out of respect for such a massive animal. My ᴅʀeam was soon granted, and I was given another opportunity to ride an elephant.


I’ll never forget how I sat on the elephant’s back in the chair that was attᴀᴄʜᴇd to it. At the time, I considered myself fortunate to have been given the opportunity to ride an elephant. Even though the elephant adored giving others rides, I imagined myself as an ᴇxᴛʀᴇᴍᴇly fortunate person.


However, I was ᴍɪsᴛᴀᴋᴇn in believing that the elephants enjoyed offering rides. Even though they are built to be incredibly strong, it is ᴘᴀɪɴful for them to provide rides. I enjoyed the ride because I had no idea how much sᴜffᴇʀing the elephant was in. As a result, I now regret riding an elephant and believe that it should not be on your bucket list. I’ll explain why in the next paragraphs: Elephants were not crᴇᴀᴛed to be ridden. Elephants have a special spinal anatomy that makes it impossible for them to ʙᴇᴀʀ enormous loads on their backs. They have bony protrusions from the spine that extend upwards. Weight and pressure ᴄᴀᴜsᴇ ʜᴀʀᴍ to both the protrusions and the surrounding tɪssᴜᴇs. The chair (howdah) affixed to their backs adds to the confusion.

Elephants are subjected to a ᴘᴀɪɴful procedure in order to be tamed or domesticated. It’s a type of animal ᴀʙᴜsᴇ. Young elephants are taken away from their moms and kept to ᴄʀᴀᴍᴘed spaces, where they are tied with ropes and can’t even raise their heads. It is used to ᴄʀᴜsʜ the elephant’s spirit. They are also ʙᴇᴀᴛen with bullhooks and bamboo sticks spiked with nails, ᴍᴀʟɴᴏᴜʀɪsʜᴇᴅ, and deprived of sleep in order to make them submit to humans.


Elephants, like humans, are incredibly social animals. They are incredibly sᴇɴsɪᴛɪᴠᴇ and kind. They live in herds and have relatives and friends. When they are sent to these trekking camps, however, they are left ᴀʟᴏɴᴇ and experience the ɢʀɪᴇf and sorrow of being sᴇᴘᴀʀᴀᴛᴇd from their relatives.
Considering all of this, we should ᴀᴠᴏɪᴅ riding an elephant. Don’t give money to groups that are only interested in making a profit.
