They spend all day rocking back and forth, chained to the hard concrete floor of their enclosure.
And people pay to watch them.
These are the elephants at the Phuket Zoo in Thailand, which might be one of the worst places on earth for animals.
The zoo claims that its elephants, some of whom spent their early lives laboring for the logging industry, are "very happy" to put on shows like "balancing acts, football games, disco dancing and races."
But visitors to the zoo tell a different story. The latest footage was taken by Olivia Skippings, a zoo visitor who was horrified by what she saw. Emma Brown, who runs a Facebook page dedicated to exposing the Phuket Zoo, posted the video to get the word out. "She was so distressed," Brown told The Dodo, "she wanted to get this footage out to others to see the conditions these animals are kept in."
