Chiang Mai, THAILAND: An elephant stands on its hind legs as it shoots a ball during a basketball performance for foreign tourists at Mae Taman Elephant Park in Chiang Mai province, northern Thailand, 22 February 2007. It was reported last year that Thailand has an estimated 4,000 elephants — 2,500 domesticated and 1,500 wild — sharply down from around 50,000 animals present in 1950.
