Overworked Elephant Drops Dead After Forced To Give Rides In 100 Degree Heat

Humans sometimes forget that every living creature on this planet has its own responsibilities and rights! Besides from our duties, all of us have the freedom to enjoy something, and as long as we understand that, the Earth is going to be a nice place to live for everybody.

on this planet has its own responsibilities and rights! Besides from our duties, all of us have the freedom to enjoy something, and as long as we understand that, the Earth is going to be a nice place to live for everybody.

Unfortunately, this is very far away from the cruel reality.

Do you think ‘slavery’ is terrible?

Anyway, more than half a million animals are enslaved in the tourism industry all over the world. These animals live a miserable life from beginning to end, filled with punishment, domination, and fear.

The death of the very poor elephant, Sambo, which happened back in 2016, has angered many around the world. Sambo was forced to carry tourists to Angkor Wat, in Cambodia, which is the biggest religious monument in the entire world.

She had been working under the searing heat for 45 minutes conveying two tourists, each in turn, to the sanctuary complex. Exhausted and overheated, as temperatures were over 100 degrees, she had fallen next to the street and is believed that she had a heart attack.

It was accounted for that a veterinarian that analyzed her, decided she died ‘because of high temperatures, heat fatigue and absence of wind that would have assisted with cooling her’. 

It was reported that people passing by, wept over the poor animal’s body.

Sambo worked with Angkor Elephant Company since 2001, and chief Oan Kiri expressed that the organization was disheartened by the misfortune. 

Elephants like her are regularly detracted from their moms when they are simply indulges and are frequently given no water, nourishment or breaks for a considerable length of time while hefting visitors around. 

At the point when they don’t give rides, they are anchored, practically unfit to move, and lament in dejection, due to being isolated from their families. 

Jack Highwood, who runs a foundation that supports elephants in captivity in Cambodia, the Elephant Valley Project, stated: 

It is the smoothness of the trekking elephant’s foot that consistently astounds me and is declaration to what number of kilometers they more likely than not made a trip to get into this circumstance. Exceptionally pitiful.

Doesn’t this just break your heart?

The Change.org request that followed the death of Sambo read: 

There is nothing of the sort as cruelty-free elephant rides. What you don’t understand is that a ‘unique’ or ‘can list’ thing for you, implies a lifetime of misery for wild animals.

Asian elephants are named imperiled by the International Union For Conservation of Nature, and elephant rides are recorded as the top most unfeeling occasion action by the World Animal Protection.

There shouldn’t be an excuse for violating animal rights, and we shouldn’t ever disregard the consequences that our actions leave on the animals!

We must treat the animals the way it’s best for them, and we shouldn’t exploit them for entertainment, experiment, clothing, or food. This applies to every animal species, no matter how we feel about them.
