Dou you still remember about an elephant with both legs chained causing him unable to reach food and water in Surabaya Zoo? The elephant (the elephant named Gonzales) lives in an enclosure with concret floor filled with feces and urine. He also showed symptoms of zoochosis and stress. Video of the elephant which we uploaded on Scorpion Facebook has reached attentions of many viewers around the world.
