Baby elephants are ripped away from their mothers and forced into a life of abuse and humiliation that is reinforced with bull hooks, whips and electric prods.
These are the elephants forced to perform with Ringling Bros. Circus, which is schedule to set-up near New York City in America this summer. New York City officials recently announced that Taconic Investments has donated land for Ringling Bros, which should help save the suffering amusement district.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has contacted the city and Taconic to inform them of Ringling’s lengthy history of animal abuse, but they refuse to sacrifice this moneymaking opportunity for animal rights!
Abusing circus animals for our entertainment is unnecessary and just plain wrong. Thank you for showing that you do not support this inhumane practice.
