Elephant Tourism for Getty

These were shot at Nongnooch village in Pattaya for Getty. Sad to see this kind of stuff is still going on here. BBC reports that "Millions of people want selfies riding elephants, or washing them, or patting their trunks. But according to a study carried out by World Animal Protection (WAP) across Asia this is helping to fuel a rise in elephants captured from the wild and kept for entertainment. The number in Thailand has increased by almost a third over the last five years."
