Elephants are powerful animals,
able to lift logs with their trunks
and knock trees over using their heads.
You might think it strange then to fin
that elephants are usually kept tithe d
by their handlers with a length of rope
or small chain that they could easily break.
This IS because they have been conditioned.
This is accomplished by trainers through the
use of a heavy metal chain to tether the
elephants while they are still young.
The elephants learn during their development
that they cannot break the bonds and they
associate them with their limits, boundaries
and freedoms. Later, when they are fully grown
and are of adult size and strength, they still
believe they cannot break that bond and so,
they never really try.
From then on, only a rope is necessary to keep
them from breaking their bonds, freeing
themselves and realizing their true strength.
You do realize I am mat really talking about
elephants at all don' t you?
