There are many places here that ill-treat even abuse animals to make them perform for tourists.

When I was a young man the curate in our parish had a Labrador dog. His party trick was to place a slice of ham on its nose and utter various commands that ended in the word "ham".  The dog was trained to toss the ham in the air, catch it and swallow it only when the words "Protestant ham" were uttered.  Possibly as the word "ham" is sometimes used to describe a poor amateur actor that made it less cruel?

 

He had previously been a sheep farmer who use sheep dogs to round up the sheep. Maybe that's not entertainment?  Then of course there's the "Sheepdog Bra" - rounds them up and points them in the right direction

They need to start with their "dog attitude" fine to let them wander the streets  , crap everywhere, cause accidents, bark and be a nuisance, they dont "take care" of them at all they are there for their mild entertainment once past  puppy  stage.

Fine to beat to death a snake most of which are harmless.

Nong Nuch used to have  performing Elephants? maybe they could start there.

Chinese, other Asians, Russians, certain others with kids and people that get taken there by taxis who collect their commission. Still plenty of markets, sadly.

Westerners only complain, they don't understand thai culture. Welcome, Chinese!
