Hi, my name is Maeve. I've never been to the circus, but I always loved seeing in the movies the big pretty elephants. But behind the lights, and under those costumes, are scars. Scar from bring abused to do tricks, for being stuck in alittle box for 26 hours, scars from giving birth at the age of 7, scars from never knowing your mother, scars from bullhooks, and electric prods, chains, whips, even blowtorches. Elephants and other circus animals are being tortured and abused, just for us to watch a show, they are being mistreated and hurt. Just so we can watch a show, do you really want this to happen? What if it was you in there, wouldn't you want anybody t help you? to save you?
