Prior to the release of Britney Spears's music video "Circus," in which elephants and lions are forced to perform humiliating and unnatural tricks, PETA fired off a letter to her manager urging her to leave animals out of her videos and live performances. Since this isn't the first time that Britney Spears has exploited exotic animals to promote herself, we must urge her to stop supporting an industry based on cruelty and violence to animals.
To force elephants to perform the tricks seen in the music video, trainers use electric prods and bull hooks on the most sensitive parts of the animals' bodies. The owners of Have Trunk Will Travel, the exhibitor that supplied the elephants, have even defended the use of cruel electric prods.
