Elephant Exploitation

Wishful Thinking


We want to think of elephants living free in the wilds of Africa and Asia.


We want to believe that every elephant is free to take a mud bath when he or she wants to.


All of these elephants are now living free at The Elephant Sanctuary, but the reality is that they all were abused before being rescued.

You may have wondered how Ringling Bros. gets 8,000-pound elephants to perform tricks like sitting up and even standing on their heads, but now you know. Ringling breaks the spirit of elephants when they are vulnerable babies who should still be with their mothers. The violent training sessions include using ropes, bullhooks, and electric shock prods.
