The bullhook is a lethal weapon resembling a fireplace poker. It is used on elephants by circus trainers to control and punish them. It is barbaric and should be stopped.

      There is no excuse for allowing abuse of animals to continue so that someone can make a buck at their expense.

      I hate circuses because animals should not be used for human entertainment. They should be left alone and should be a left to live happy lives. This is a disgusting way to train a wild animal that should never be trained to do tricks in the first place!

      Elephants are beautiful creatures that belong in the wild. I recently watched HBO's "An Apology to Elephants" and was really disturbed to learn how the animals are beaten by the circus trainers. I do not think such violence should be promoted in Hampton Roads.
