Seventeen-year old Thai mahout Aim holds the elephant hook, or angkus, that he uses to control his five-year old elephant Leo at the Surin Elephant Round-up festival in northeast Thailand November 18, 2007. Every year hundreds of elephants and mahouts head to the city to take part in the country's biggest elephant festival, selling sugarcane to tourists to feed them, and taking them for rides around town. With logging banned in 1989, more babies are hitting streets and trekking camps to meet tourism-driven demand for docile, good-looking animals. Picture taken November 18, 2007. To match featu
