Isn't this just irresponsible reporting? Ken Feld, Ringling's owner, testified a few years ago that the elephant trainers do indeed "strike" the elephants with bullhooks in order to get them to perform. Elephants are chained for 20+ hours in concrete enclosures in between performances. Lions: caged. Elephants are chained on travel cars for up to three days at a time, standing in their own excrement. They only perform humiliating and unnatural tricks out of fear. Watch the undercover videos. Look at the pictures posted online. It's a shame that you are still glorifying animal circuses in light of the realities. Jun 24, 2011
