Elephant trainer

The term elephant trainer is somewhat difficult to explain, since a mahout can be an elephant trainer, or an elephant keeper who performs some tricks, or an elephant handler in intensive management with elephants, or a zookeeper who works elephants and other species through bars in protected contact.

But is handling training?

Here, the defenition of an elephant trainer is a person who has actually thought elephants to do new things, which they couldnt do before, and has trained elephants from wild, or at least a very unschooled stage, to be calmly working tame animals.
