I love Elephants: NO CIRCUS FOR ME

Well CIRQUE DU SOLEIL is fine!

This morning I watched the HBO documentary: An Apology To Elephants. It literally made me sick. No I’m not a member of PETA, yet Elephants have always held a special place in my heart. To me elephants were synonymous to Africa. They are huge yet quiet and regal. They are extremely smart and have a humanistic virtue of mourning.

The only way to train an elephant is to, first, break them down mentally. They are removed from their mothers early.

This is the hook that trainers/beast use to control elephants. They are poked or stabbed into submission.

Elephants are not meant to be tied to ropes for 19 hours a day. They are meant to roam.
