I surprised my children to a night at the Elephant SANCTUARY. When we got there the elephants were chained up. It is not a sanctuary at all! When we woke up in the morning the same elephants were chained up twoing and throwing, going back and forth. It was so sad to watch. Even though it felt so amazing to be up so close and touch these beautiful creatures, I felt awful paying so much money for the experience knowing the elephants are not roaming around freely. It is the same as any other animal ‘sanctuary’ DO NOT SUPPORT THESE KIND OF CHARITIES/SANCTURIES.
