Shocking Video Shows Mistreatment Of 'Water For Elephants' Tai

Movie star electric shocked from Animal Defenders on Vimeo.

 

"She stars alongside Resse Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson in the latest Hollywood film Water For Elephants.

But as this shocking video shows, Tai the elephant has been mistreated by the trainers that made her a star.

In the secret footage, released by charity Animal Defenders International (ADI), the elephant is seen being given electric shocks with hand held stun guns and being beaten with bull hooks.

She can be heard crying out in pain when she is shocked into performing a headstand. Tai is not the only elephant that is mistreated in the video."

I think the title of this post should be changed since it's sorta misleading. I took it as Tai was abused while on the WFE set...

Anyone that thinks this is abuse has obviously never worked with an animal in their life. There was nothing disturbing about this at all. Sorry, that so many misinformed people have their emotions played on by PETA. The bull hooks they are using aren't even solid but hollow like pvc. They give on contact. You don't understand how different they are built than us. now forgive me for upsetting the easy to confuse ones here
