Did you hear that a 39 year old endangered Asian elephant named Carol was shot in Mississippi?
I'm not a fan of the circus in general the way they use those sharp metal bullhooks on elephants and keep them on the road most of the year. I've seen the undercover videos.
But if Ringling Bros circus cares about animals at all, they need to keep Carol off their tours and retire her. There are reports that she's going to be out for several weeks, but why can't the circus just let her enjoy life in a more natural way?
No one can tell me that those circus tricks and shipping elephants cross-country in train cars and trucks to perform under bright lights is what's best for Carol, can they?
Please sign this to show Ringling Bros that you are against them putting Carol on tour after she was just shot in a drive-by. This is the least they can do when these animals are out there performing their entire lives for the circus.
