Elephants, all of __(3)__ are social creatures, prefer traveling in groups led by females. Trappers will often catch young elephants by drawing them away from their mothers and selling them to tour companies. There they may be confined to small cages and beaten with nails. Moreover, they must spend hours every day carrying tourists on their weak backs, which can cause painful injuries. __(4)__, many of them aren’t given enough food or water. __(5)__ rides on the backs of these elephants seems interesting.

2. A terrible tragedy tonight at LNN. Elephants in Thailand were found trapped in cages and starved at many places in the country for the elephant-riding tourism industry.

This is all done to control them, and eventually, __(3)__ more money for tour companies. Despite their weak backs, many of these elephants are made __(4)__ tourists for hours a day. And __(5)__ the owners’ desire for profit, these animals may carry an

Let’s look at a famous example of healthy competition between two siblings whose love and respect for each other may cause you to __(3)__ tears.

Venus and Serena Williams are two of the biggest names in tennis. During their careers, these __(4)__ sisters have played against each other many times. However, despite the obvious tension their matches bring, they have always remained close friends. It’s likely that this friendship is a result of them having practiced together from a young age. This routine has likely enabled the gifted girls to view each other not as opponents* but rather as two

people __(5)__ each other to improve. In other words, their competitive spirit is fueled by their mutual admiration and love.

They often receive __(2)__ treatment, such as being whipped with sticks or working in the fierce sun without food, water, or even shade. This type of torture __(3)__ many open wounds, which may go uncared for. Many animals are bought and sold at markets around the country. And once they are no longer useful, they are slaughtered for food. Animal rights organizations such as PETA have asked tourists not to support this trade; __(4)__, many of their calls have fallen on deaf ears. It’s high time __(5)__ we __(5)__ our foot down on this cruel form of tourism. Next time you visit Egypt, be sure to boycott* camel riding and other such tourist attractions.

5. Have you ever heard of orangutan boxing*? It’s a cruel type of sport in which

orangutans are dressed in shorts and boxing gloves and trained to __(1)__ one another in so-called “boxing matches.” __(2)__, what happens behind the scenes is truly depressing. Usually, these orangutans are snatched* as babies from the wild __(3)__ they can normally roam free. Then they are __(4)__ by trainers who may cage, beat, and starve them into

performing for an audience. They are forced to participate in these boxing matches every day, throwing kicks and punches for about thirty minutes at a time. The audience members, most of __(5)__ are unaware of the pain these orangutans go through, watch in pleasure and excitement. And many of them even believe that the orangutans are having fun, when in reality they may be suffering from cruel training practices.

Many of them are physically and mentally __(3)__ by being forced to jump through rings lined with knives or play with fire. Beatings regularly occur when these monkeys are trained, with their flesh __(4)__ constantly. And because they are taken away from their families at such a young age, they are lonely, stressed, and depressed. __(5)__ all of these factors, they often become mentally ill, circling around in their cages all the time, rocking back and forth, or even biting themselves and pulling their own hair.

7. Located on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand is the Bay of Islands.

Bottlenose dolphins are particularly __(4)__ to humans due to their preference for swimming near coastal regions. __(5)__, according to the Department of Conservation, the number of dolphins coming to the Bay of Islands has decreased by 66% since 1990. These dolphins, most of __(6)__ no longer visit the region, are down to a core* group of only 19. __(7)__, they have a 75% infant death rate—the highest in New Zealand and worldwide.

And __(5)__ average, Santorini alone has about 2,000, making it one of the largest donkey populations in Greece.

Unfortunately, instead of being treasured, they are made __(6)__ hundreds of tourists up steep, dangerous cobblestone* paths every day. These donkeys, most of __(7)__ work 20 hours a day, are often given little food, water, or even shade to rest. __(8)__, they are often beaten if they don’t obey.
