South of Bangkok, hugging the Gulf of Thailand, is the province of Samut Prakan — home to the capital’s international airport, the ancient city of Muang Boran and sadly the Samutprakarn Crocodile Farm & Zoo. It is here that elephants are forced to perform daily to almost non-existent crowds. One of them, a female who is so skinny and malnourished has been nicknamed ”Bones.”

Bones caught the eye of the world when a video of her performing tricks to an empty stadium went public. First, she balances herself on two wooden tables before walking slowly over to another area where she precariously walks a “tightrope” made of two steel rods.

A wooden table and a “tightrope” held with rods shouldn’t be able to withstand the weight of such an enormous animal, but because Bones is so skinny, she is sadly able to perform the sickening trick for onlookers. If you watch the video footage taken of Bones, you can see her spine, pelvic bone and shoulders protruding from her skin. It’s a heartbreaking sight, and to think that she is forced to do perform each and every day is absolutely devastating.

When confronted, a park spokesman assured that all of the park’s elephants were “good.” One look at Bones and you know that’s clearly a lie. She and the other elephants at the park must be rescued from this horror house and given a new life at a proper elephant sanctuary. Asking anything less will just allow them to continue to suffer.

Officials have forced the park to give their elephants a break from performances, but that isn’t enough. They should be retired permanently. Keep the pressure on Thai officials by sharing this petition on social media.

Please sign this Care2 petition and demand that the Samutprakarn Crocodile Farm & Zoo give Bones and the other elephants to a reputable sanctuary. SIGN HERE!
