There was a time when it was believed that dolphins enjoyed swimming with humans. That might have been true when the animals were able to swim with someone by choice but being held captive to perform this kind of action is cruel and inhumane.
There also might have been a time when elephants would have helped a human by letting this person sit on their back. But being forced to carry tourists around has nothing to do with choice or pleasure or freedom.
And to believe that baby tigers would willingly leave their mothers to sit on a tourist’s lap is either very naive or worse.
Trip Advisor has listened. The company will stop supporting this kind of cruelty.
