It really seems like this book misses more than it hits. Even though it’s too easy for Westerners to sit in judgement on the cultural traditions of “developing” countries, the ways elephants have been and STILL ARE being treated is a pretty easy case. Glossing over everything humans do to them in favor of lauding them for simply not exterminating the species is an extremely low bar for praise.
What we have done and allowed to happen to the Asian and African Elephant is the surest sign of our moral bankruptcy as a virtually worthless species.
Agreed, of all the species roaming earth we are the specious one.
