Shut Down Thailand’s Abusive Elephant Village

Target: Thai Society of the Prevention of Cruelty Director,  Suthisak Sucha

Goal: Shut down an elephant village where an employee allegedly physically abused a baby elephant in front of tourists.

A couple of tourists were at an elephant village in Thailand when they allegedly caught the physical abuse of a three-year-old baby elephant on film. A staff member at Damnoen Saduak Elephant Village is seen in the video approaching the poor calf in a threatening manner with his fist raised. When the calf cowers away in fear, the cruel man jerks its ear, sending the animal to the ground shrieking in pain. He then kicks the elephant’s foot and chained it up. The sickening, proud smile the abuser displays afterward shows that this cruel behavior is not frowned upon at the village.

The elephant’s instant reaction of fear when the aggressive man first approaches the animal speaks volumes. It’s clear the elephant is familiar with aggressive, threatening, and abusive handling. The threat of his fist alone should be enough to have him fired and charged with animal abuse. Since the elephant is clearly suffering physical abuse by the staff, the entire elephant village should be shut down. It’s bad enough the elephants are forced to survive in unhealthy, closed quarters. There’s no excuse for this deplorable display of cruelty to an innocent animal.

According to outlets, the only punishment the monster who abused the elephant received was suspension, and the owner of the facility defended him. Demand that the Damnoen Saduak Elephant Village be forced to shut down permanently, and the poor animals be sent to a safe sanctuary.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Suthisak Sucha,

A baby elephant at the Damneon Saduak Elephant Village was reportedly abused physically by a staff member who smiled proudly after threatening the calf with his fist, then hurting its ear so badly it went to the ground shrieking in pain. He then kicked its foot before chaining it up. This blatant display of horrific abuse shows that the village has no regard for elephant lives. They’re using these poor innocent elephants and abusing them for fun.

These sick monsters should be prosecuted. We demand that action be taken immediately to shut the Damneon Saduak Elephant Village down permanently and relocate the poor animals to a safe sanctuary.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Writing “These sick monsters should be prosecuted.” about the staff can be in the comments perhaps but not in a letter to Suthisak Sucha.

  6. Wendy Morrison says:

    Please STOP THIS ANIMAL ABUSE& CRUELTY at this Village and send all these elephants to a SAFE HAVEN of a SANCTUARY!
    PUNISH this individual and anyone else for that fact who are being cruel to thus 3 year old calf and/or other elephants. Give thus idiot and all other abusers the exact same torture and worse!

  7. An eye for an eye is what I keep saying that is what animal abusers need to have done onto them..do onto them as they have done onto the animal….maybe then this will stop…I am so sick of the rotten people in this world

  8. Get the word out about this to all tourist and tourist groups who go there because the best way to stop this is to hit them where it hurts the most in their pockets. Remember money talks.
    Make sure you share this with everyone even your local travel agency.

  9. I JUST HAD TO CRY READING THIS, TO THINK THAT THIS EVIL VILE HUMAN BEING CAN JUST BE SO FUXXING CRUEL, WHY, JUST HOW BRAVE IS THIS IDIOT, AND WHY CANNOT SOME ONE STOP IT GOING ON, WHAT HAS THE WONDERFUL CREATURE EVER DONE TO BE IN SUCH A VILE PLACE, WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THIS WORLD.

  10. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser

  11. This Psychotic sub-human should be tied to a tree and should be beaten up the VERY SAME WAY HE ABUSED THIS BABY ELEPHANT. How on earth any one would stay quietly when you see this mentally deranged psycho torturing the poor helpless baby elephant? Throw this retarded evil man out of that location. Don’t allow him to come close to any animal anymore. If the organization does not take any action against this man then something is not right that place. Then the place need to be close down A.S.A.P. Send all the animals to a different sanctuary where the animals will be treated with love & respect.

  12. Lisbeth Avlarado Sanchez says:

    This innocent baby elephant as well as all the other don’t deserve to be in this horrible place. This animals don’t deserve to live in captivity. They were born to be free. This horrible place should be closed forever. And all this cruel scumbags sent to jail.

  13. Czerny A. Czerny A. says:

    If this POS does this in front of tourists, can you imagine what he does when no one is looking? What kind of country condones this type of behavior? Certainly not one that I’d ever visit.
