National Elephant Day- Thailand

Thailand has celebrated National Elephant Day on March 13 for the last 20 years.  Wikipedia can provide some information.

Tourists in Thailand have an opportunity to ride elephants.  It is reported that all of the elephants in Thailand that have received any type of training have undergone "crushing" as a calf.  If you visit Thailand please don't ride an elephant until you have read this: Why You Shouldn't Ride Elephants in Thailand
