The wildlife expert shared a video clip over all this fuss with the mahout
in which he clearly visible using a foul language with the visitor.
Airavata Khmer Elephant Foundation was created four years ago to protect the very last surviving tame domestic elephant population in Ratanakkiri province, as well as the traditions of their mahouts
But elephant trainers, known as mahouts
, brought well-wishers of a different species to celebrate there on Tuesday, although the king himself did not appear.
They're not allowed to be hit - only in an absolute dangerous situation will the mahout
use the gancho for anything.
When the gancho is used it would usually be a little tap on the back of the ear, but most of the controlling of an elephant is done by the mahout
's voice and by his feet.
Apart from observing elephants at their natural best (and Supakorn Tanaseth says that even in the past year since they have followed these stringent criteria set by World Animal Protection, he has seen how much more relaxed and happy both elephants and mahouts
have become), there is also a Mahout
Chat session, where tourists can spend some time learning about elephants from the men who live with and care for them.
The 371 shareholders of the company are from the wilayats of Mahout
Rehabilitation Centre for Disabled Children in Mahout
The group of friends were on a holiday who observed the mahout
was not around and offered the elephant some fruits.
