It is time now to take the chain and saddle off of the elephants. It’s now time to provide an elephant haven for them with no riding. Walk together to the green fields, roam free, play in the mud, eat well and swim in the deep river. It is time to retire them from their labors, young or old, and say goodbye to being ridden. It is time for people to come to treat them with respect.
