魔法少女 worldwide soy milk hunter I made a video!

I've been thinking about this trip quite a lot recently. 
There is a specific source of elephant gifs from a specific green uniformed sanctuary that I was enamored by for years prior to this experience. "That 'sanctuary' is like Disneyland", was mentioned when I excitedly referred to it. First thought - amazing! - then I realised it was in the sense of manufactured happiness. The gifs are indeed heart warming, but not so much so when learnt that these animals are (unintentionally?) taught to rely on humans who are by their side 24/7 and then reintegrated back into the wild without working knowledge to survive alone from their own kind. I want to believe that the establishment exists for the good of the elephants rather than for monetary gain... But who knows?
