STOP ABUSEING THERE CIRCUS ELEPHANTS!!!!

Behind the bright lights and colorful costumes Ringling Brothers circus is hiding a dark twisted, and cruel truth. After a nighttime circus performance a young girl strays away from the crowd to get a closer look at the animals and peeks behind the curtain. As she looks she spies an elephant and its trainer but what she see’s next scars her for the rest of her life. The trainer hits the elephant over the head with a sharp object and it rears up in pain. She hurries away, shocked and leaves the tent crying. Unfortunately, Ringling Bros Circus still runs today. No one should go to the Ringling Brothers Circus because they abuse and beat there elephants, the animals are not taken care of well and they have violated the AWA numerous times.
One reason why you shouldn’t go to the Ringling Brothers Circus is because they abuse their elephants. Former Ringling employees such as Tom Rider reported that the animals were “routinely beaten and abused”. There is graphic video of the elephants being yelled at, poked with electric prods and beaten with bull hooks. This video has shocked many and as you will learn later was used in a criminal trial. Believe it or not, Ringling even has the nerve to also abuse the baby elephants! When the elephants are still nursing on their mother their legs are tied up with ropes and they are torn away from all the family they have. As they cry for each other the baby is poked with electric prods and forced to move in the other direction being half dragged. ” 3-year-old Benjamin drowned in a pond as he tried to move away from a trainer poking him with a bull hook.” Reports the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida. 29 elephants just like Benjamin, have been killed unnaturally since 1992. “On average an elephant’s life is 31 years shorter in the circus then in the wild.” In the long run a night out is not worth an elephants suffering.
Another reason you should not go to the Ringling Brothers Circus is because the elephants are not taken care of well. One example of this is that they live in cramped dirty boxcars. They are kept in the boxcars for up to 70 hours at a time! And within the cage as a video from PETA shows the elephants are so cramped they can hardly shift a foot. Another example is that the animals are not given needed veterinary care. In one case they “failed to provide adequate veterinary care to animals including an elephant with a large swelling on its leg and a camel with bloody wounds” stated PETA after an undercover investigation was launched. Animals were also forced to perform when they were lame or/and had chronic pain. Thats like your grandma trying to do gymnastics! Ringling should not have animals in their circus if they can’t care for them properly.
Finally, you should not go to the Ringling Brothers Circus because they violated the AWA (animal welfare act). Huffington post reports they were charged “the largest settlement of its kind in US history” They were charged for multiple things such are failure to test elephants for tuberculosis and improper care of dangerous animals. They were also charged with causing stress, physical harm and unnecessary discomfort to their elephants. Video and pictures from multiple investigations and trials showed the world the first glimpse of the cruelty and proved that there were not just rumors, but really terrible things going on.

In conclusion, Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus is nothing but the cruelest show on earth. So next time you go to the box office and decide to pick up some tickets for the circus, remember that every ticket you buy the animals pays the price.
