Elephants are widely used as tourists’ attraction in Asia, mostly as means of transport, exotic scenery for the trip’s pictures and tricks and dancing street shows. The Thai festival Surin Elephant Round-up offers all of the above and much more. It is held on the third weekend of November in a northeastern province of Thailand called Surin.. Over 300 elephants are forced into dozens of shows including elephant races, strength displays like log-pulling, pick-up small objects such as matchboxes with their trunks for the dazzled crowd, elephant dances, a tug-of-war against dozens of humans, re-enactments of old hunting and war scenes and of course the soccer game loved so much by the tourists who don’t see or think about the long period of practice hated so much by the elephants.
The Surin people were professional elephants exploiters, abducting baby elephants in the wild after killing their mothers and anyone else from the family who tried to defend the helpless babies. Then they domesticated them which is the washed term for isolation, constant beating and generally crushed them so they could be used for agriculture work or in war. These functions’ need decreased in time however the mahouts (elephant tamers), who still wanted to make a living using their violent skills, started the elephant entertainment business in Thailand. The elephants are cursed with humans’ ingenuity bless. The practices are the same, baby elephants are still endured the cruel, spirit-breaking process called Phajaan in Thai or "the crush" in English, in which they are imprisoned for several days, in a body size cage so they can’t turn around or lie down, and are constantly beaten with bats, poked with nail-studded sticks, and gouged with bull hooks until they are totally broken. Many babies die from their injuries, stress, starvation or from a repetitive stress syndrome caused by seeing their family killed in front of their eyes.
The poor survivors are smuggled across Thailand to be sold as the saddest entertainers in the world.

Now women are property, to be sold and owned and bred, while a strict census keeps their numbers manageable and under control.
