Asian elephants have been used for transportation, labor, amusement as in circus, as athletes in sporting events etc.

Are African elephants incapable of being domesticated to the same degree or is it that the people have no interest in doing so?

If it were possible, I would love to be able to dedicate the remaining years of my life to help these
magical creatures.
For all the elephant lovers, let's do what we can for Hanako. There is a petition. She deserves
some joy for the little time she has left.

"Tyke Elephant Outlaw."

I know I couldn't watch it. I contribute to some save the elephant funds and spreead the word about circuses and how bad they are and won't even go to the zoo anymore. it takes a heartless bastard to harm elephants or any animal as far as I'm concerned.

There's a picture link of a hippo perfuming tricks in a circus. Guess who's not going to watch.
