Most elephants like the one to be used for rides this weekend at Without Walls International Church in Tampa, FL are broken and trained with the use of a bullhook. A bullhook is a training device with a wooden handle attached to a sharp steel hook and poker, similar to a fireplace poker. Bullhooks are used to inflict pain.
The elephant will be crammed into a truck, dragged to the church and forced to endure endless hours of plodding in circles while carrying church members on its back.
