The story of this elephant will break your heart. Wassana was kept in captivity for more than 4 decades and her only job was to give rides to people in Thailand. No one had the slightest of ideas about what kind of torture she was bearing. Usually we see the captured animals in zoo and they are a great source of entertainment for kids. Unfortunately we ignore the fact that these animals are sacrificing their life for our entertainment. Wassana's keepers are from Thailand and they used to beat her a lot and due to that she had an infection. Fortunately she is being retired from all of her duties and she'll finally live the life she deserves. You can help animals like Wassana by making a donation to WFFT.
