I think the bigger issue are the economic disparities that lead many elephants into a life of smuggling.

brantgoose: Movie pitch

An elephant boy in India or somewhere Americans may have heard of decides to try to save his elephant by smuggling it into the United States.

This turns out to be surprisingly easy.

Once there, the elephant plays Curious George and gets into all kinds of thing, including the Room. It is immediately made President of the United States because it is the smartest person in the Room.

This could really be a movie. It could be the feel-good movie of the year. Let's say 2025.

Gyrfalcon: How does one smuggle an elephant? Where do you hide it?


In your pajamas, of course.

Is that an elephant in your pants or are your testicles swollen, Nicki Minaj's cousin?

If they regard Elephants as religious icons. Make anyone caught buying their servant. Have them spend years taking care of them.

brantgoose: My question (obvious):  who smuggles elephants nowadays?

They are nearly obsolete now that we have bulldozers, lumber cutting and stacking machines that can pull the branches off a tree like a child picking a flower and pulling off all the leaves, and so on and so forth.

Some elephants are being taught to beg or to "paint" by their elephant boys so that they both can eat.

Elephants are now just really smart dancing monkeys.

Maybe elephant smugglers are just trying to protect them from ivory poachers. Get the elephants to rich people and they will be protected. And fed.


Owning elephants shows how wealthy and powerful you are.

So of course the rich and powerful are going to illegally acquire elephants and use their money and power to get the government to let them keep their illegally acquired elephants.
