Elephants’ Chains Removed After Welfare Complaints

Elephants Chains Removed After Welfare Complaints

Dozens of elephants at the Maesa Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai have been freed for their chains after criticism of their conditions.

The camp was slammed by charities for taking the creatures into captivity and making them perform for paying tourists.

One of the complaints were the metals chains that were fastened around the ankles of the jumbos.

But bosses at the camp have now begun to remove the shackles and letting some of its 77 elephants wander around the grounds.
