"It’s a myth that elephants are clever because they can paint. Please don’t think they are gifted or that it’s cute to watch this form of tourist ‘entertainment’. Here’s a few facts you need to know:
❖Elephants endure months of physical abuse to learn how to hold a paint brush, draw a straight line and paint flowers and leaves on trees
❖For years they then paint the same repetitive painting over and over again, every single day, sometimes twice or three times a day
❖When training an elephant to paint, a sharp metal bull hook or nail is used to guide the paintbrush
❖When the elephant paints incorrectly they are beaten as punishment, often the hook is rammed into the elephants ear or they are hit on their head or trunk
❖Look for scars or beatings on the top of an elephants head or trunk from metal bull hooks used to train elephants for human ‘entertainment’
What can we do to stop this abuse? ❖Please don’t buy elephant paintings, think of the abuse the elephants have endured their entire lives before painting the perfect picture❖Please forward our website and tell friends NOT to buy elephant paintings
Visit an online search engine to see video footage of how elephants are taught to paint and you’ll never buy a painting.”
