Oh jikes, read that article with fascination. Personally I don't have a good history of riding on animals. By their very nature animals are unpredictable. Besides my bad experience riding a horse in Ireland, I had an experience in Morrocco while reluctantly riding a camel in the Sahara. The camel attached to mine from behind panicked after its rider over balanced & fell off it. He was lucky he naturally rolled away from the camel & that it didn't trample him. My camel started getting agitated & they had to get me off it promptly.
This story has made me think twice about going on an elephant safari if I'm ever in the position to do so. Maybe there's a valid reason why I'm so vwary about these sort of activities.
Ob a different note, how are these animals treated? Are the welfare standards in general good, I wonder. Much animal misbehaviour in captivity can be attributed to human mistreatment. almost 7 years ago
