Spa Day for Elephants

YouTube Link

These adorably relaxed elephants are enjoying full spa services at Punnathoor Cotta Elephant Yard, located  in Guruvayuron, Kerala in southern India. The elephants are honored in an annual event each July, as they are central to a ritual temple procession that month. July is considered a month of rejuvenation for both animals and humans. The center shown here can pamper up to 59 elephants at once. Via Viral Nova.

I noticed the chains but I overlooked them, thinking that perhaps it was a temporary safety precaution while the elephants were interacting with the caretakers. (E.g., while lying down in water, so that the people bathing them didn't get hurt or held under the water.)

Yet after seeing your comment, I read more about this organization and I don't approve of their practices. This is the first animal post I've regretted making. I'll be more careful in the future.
