Animals provide the human race with pleasure, love, respect, and comradery. Not only do animals provide us with such personal pleasure but they play a huge role in our ecosystem, without them the ecosystem would fail. So why is it that a business that makes millions of dollars off animals who provide the public with pleasure, excitement, and entertainment would allegedly abuse them? I wish I could answer this question but I can’t. What I do know is that the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus are under investigation for beating, mistreating, and causing unnecessary trauma and physical harm to their elephants.
They are being investigated by the USDA, who has allegedly turned a blind eye to some of these serious offenses, and they face federal lawsuit for the abuse against these innocent, majestic animals. An ex-employee on his death bed sparks a conscious and divulges the information PETA and other animal advocates have been screaming about for years. I warn you, the footage is hard to watch but maybe this will make the public think twice before going to the circus. To learn more about the abuse that these animals endure visit The Washington Post http://ringlingbeatsanimals.com, and http://www.saplonline.org.
What do you think? Is this true and if so why is it allowed to take place?
