Elephants are wild animals that walk long distances in their natural environment but Brian Boswell Circus chain them so they cant walk, lie down, reach water or food - and then physically beat them.
- BRIAN BOSWELL CIRCUS
I was utterly disgusted to see the abuse metered out to the elephants that you force to perform in your Circus.
Besides being physically beaten for no reason, they are chained without proper shelter, or access to water or food.
Elephants have incredibly strong bonds with other members of their herd, and walk long distances in their natural habitat.
To remove them from their family, chain them on short chains and then beat them into submission so they will perform unnatufal tricks is blatant animal cruelty.
Ignorance might have made this acceptable when the circus was started 100 years ago, but this is the 21st century and it is totally unacceptable.
Elephants have incredibly strong bonds with other members of their herds and to remove them from their family is cruel enough, but to keep them chained is inhumane.
Please release these elephants into a sanctuary where they are free to live in their natural habitat and socialise with other elephants, and have free access to food and water without the threat of being beaten.
