Elephant Abandoned by her Mahout

Yes, it happens. It happened in Mumbai last week, as this Indian Express Newsline report tells us:
For days, as hapless residents watched, the 35-year-old female elephant passively stood in the open, tied to a tree.

"The poor thing was drenched and her legs have been affected. She has been in the rain for four days now," he said.

Dr Kazveen Umrigar, a veterinarian, said that while an elephant is unlikely to be affected by the rain, wet feet could lead to an infection. "If they start to feel cold, they can turn hypothermic and the body temperature can dip below normal," she added.
But now the rains have abated, and the mahout is back.

Elephants don't forget.
That mahout should know that.
It is the worst thing to abuse someone or some animal that trusts you.

michael, it's the worst thing, totally. i'm also amazed that the poor animal stood there patiently...and i'm glad the local residents did what they could, feeding her bananas so that she wouldn't go hungry...

It cannot have effect as a matter of fact, that's exactly what I suppose.
