The Southern Elephant Hospital in Krabi is today celebrating Thailand’s National Elephant Day. And seven lucky elephants, all patients at the hospital, were joining in.

 

A religious ceremony was held at the hospital this morning. Then food and fruit treats were offered to the elephants, all patients at the hospital.

 

There are seven elephants being treated at the hospital at this time. Most of them had been working as elephant rides for tourists. Some of them were injured from various accidents whilst others were suffering from a range of ailments.

The hospital still allows the elephants to be ridden?

 

That's damaging to the elephants.

Is Local Elephant Day a different event?

It's a hospital. They don't decide on that. They only treat the animals.

Nevertheless, you are correct that riding them should be banned. Tourists should avoid riding activities. Plenty of non riding options these days.

Fruit is a food. Don't they get food any other days?
