In India, the simple treatment has been that the domesticated elephants in musth are tied to a strong tree and are not given food The mahout puts the elephant on starvation diet for several days, thus the duration of their elephants' musth is typically reduced to typically to five to eight days; The other options are sedatives like xylazine that are carefully used under the care of the vets.
When the mahout takes the male elephant on the street, he has a responsibility toward the society and has to keep a watchful eye on the male elephant whose behaviour pattern may change before the onslaught of musth.
As for the state governments in various regions, they have to keep a list of privately owned elephants, the checklist of the elephants health, medication taken, etc. The big animals need proper health care and prefer to be in their habitat where they have freedom, fresh air, fresh food and above all wide space to walk majestically. Put the elephants in the Urban Prison is very unfortunate, in the case of bull elephants, threats to human lives are very much there.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxbegging on the street and beaches
Street begging elephants and their mahouts (elephant handlers) wander hot spot tourist destinations visiting bars and restaurants usually from 6pm until midnight. Bags of sugarcane, pineapple or bananas are sold to tourists to feed to the elephant. People can also pay to have their photo taken. This is a miserable life for an elephant and listed below are a few reasons why:
Elephants require a varied diet of grasses and leaves, plus clean fresh water daily which is not found in the inner cities
Street begging reduces an elephant’s life expectancy by at least 50%. Calves rarely live past 5 years old
Elephants become ill from breathing exhaust fumes, drinking dirty water, poor food, walking over concrete pavements, and are involved in car accidents
The heat from the road is incredibly painful for the elephants sensitive feet
Loud music, crowds of people, fear, stress, disorientation, beatings and drugging lead elephants to physical and mental breakdowns
