How Do You Handle An Elephant?

@Sciencemom: Seriously? We're talking about elephant rides, not animal research. I recently went to the circus and saw a handler hitting an elephant and there was a hole in her skin where the hook went in. We don't need to be hurting animals for fun. That's what this is about - fun. It's not hard to say you won't ride an elephant. Anyone who looks at these animals can see that they shouldn't be in captivity, let alone made to carry people around on their backs. I would really like to think that we are better than that, but clearly not.
