All About Elephants
Elephants are found in places like Africa, Asia and India. In the wild these majestic beasts build lasting and loving relationships among the herd’s members. They do not balance on balls, podiums or wear costumes. For our mere hour or two of entertainment these animals have spent years in abuse, punishment, solitary confinement, loneliness and fear.
In order for an elephant to be “trained” to perform, they start when they are infants. These babies are viciously and cruelly snatched away from their mothers and begin their journey through a hellish lifetime of inhumane treatment.
They are taken away from the herd with the use of a tranquilizer dart, then transported to the holding facility. It is here the “breaking” process begins. These cute, innocent animals will endure the withholding of food, solitary confinement and are left to the mercy of a cruel trainer.
To break the spirit of the baby elephant, the use of whips, bull hooks and regular beatings are forced upon it. They are also chain continuously to ensure they will never wander – watch the circus elephants when in the parking lot. They seldom move beyond the point of a short chain length. Not to mention, the look in their eyes is filled with sadness and resignation.
Elephants are highly intelligent and social animals, circuses are nothing more than a torture chamber with a life sentence attached- we treat murderers better in the prison system than they do with these innocent victims in the circus trade. In addition, they spend most of their time travelling and chained in the back of a truck – 20 out of 24 hours a day – for an animal meant to roam this is a vicious reality.
This has been going on for far too long. Isn’t it time we shut down these cruel excuses for fun and let our kids experience what elephants are really like? Help spread the word of the treatment all wild animals have to endure in the circus trade. Boycott circuses that use elephants in their acts (or any other wild animal). Let’s stand up as parents and caring human beings and shout STOP and ENOUGH!
For more information on the treatment of animals in the circus trade, look on the internet. Research the truth behind the glitter and glam to see for yourself the uncaring and inhumane life these innocent animals endure until the day they die.
