"Water for Elephants" Star Previously Abused

Shocking new video has been released by Animal Defenders International that shows the animal star of Water for Elephants being abused by its trainers.

The movie, starring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon, depicts Tai the elephant covered in blood and suffering from bruises and injuries, but it’s mostly computer-generated and the blood used is fake. The producers of the movie have said that the animals weren’t harmed in the filming. Even the American Humane Association (AHA) had monitors on the set and gave the film their “No Animals Were Harmed” in the making certification.

But now, apparently, the video from 2005 shows Tai being stunned by electric shocks and hit with large metal hooks before crying out in pain when shot with a stun gun while performing a headstand.

Obviously the elephant learned the tricks prior to the movie, however, to note is that none of the footage from the video was taken during Tai’s training for Water for Elephants.

If you want to see the footage for yourself, ADI has the full video on their website.
