Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
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.

(Elephant - Entertainment - 18) This baby elephant is being trained to sit on a tub. Ringling falsely claims that the tricks are an extension of an elephant’s natural behavior and that they use only voice commands and rewards to get the animals to learn a set routine. In reality, the training tools are a terrifying combination of ropes, chains, bullhooks, electrical shock devices, denial of material protection and corporal punishment. Look in the eyes!
