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.

Reality

(Elephant - Entertainment - 21) Three bullhooks are used simultaneously on one elephant to force a headstand. Two handlers are using a bulhook on each hind foot while Gary Jacobson uses a bullhook to apply pressure to the back of the head. A rope is affixed to the elephant’s trunk to keep it pulled under and between the front legs. Read Whistleblower Validates Ringling Cruelty to Elephants.
