From Ameer Sangvhi, August 7, 2011
An abused, ill, and severely exhausted, elephant with weak legs (as a result of brutal beating and constant pounding on concrete surface since her birth) could not climb a ramp of the rail cargo and collapsed. A crew from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey TERROR Show intimidated and forced the elephant to get up and get into the rail cargo.

She did not receive any veterinary care; cops from the Anaheim Police
Department did nothing to help, rather they enjoyed the show, and kept on the
concerned citizens to make sure no one rushed to help the collapsed elephant.
After constant inquiries to the officers, they finally provided contact number
for Anaheim Animal Control, where all calls from various people were ignored;
eventually, the operator requested the concerned citizens to stop calling, by
admitted that already six phone calls were made regarding the situation and a
care crew had been deployed. After more than 35 minutes long wait, when phone
calls were placed again, the uniform response given to each caller that a team
of two animal control officers were already present at the time of the incident
according to whom the elephant was perfectly fine and needed no attention.
The concerned citizens were determined to remain at the scene until the elephant received a proper veterinary evaluation and treatment. At that time an employee of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey TERROR show, attacked one civilian. Citizens placed a 911 call, but when two deputies arrived they went straight to the attacker and sympathized with him. They refused to arrest the attacker and prevented the concerned citizens from performing the Citizens’ Arrest.
Meanwhile three Special Forces Vehicles including a K9 unit arrived at the
scene to intimidate and disperse the concern citizens. More than an hour later,
three of us returned to check if the injured elephant and other animals were
being further terrorized and tortured, but we could not get any closer as the
special units with the K9 units had setup an overnight base at the scene.
Please call Anaheim Animal Control @ (714) 935-8428 and write complains or visit their office at 200 S. Anaheim Blvd, Suite 525, Anaheim, California 92805, and demand answers for why the brutally tortured, terrorized, and injured elephant was deprived of proper veterinary care? Remember to demand to hold the responsible people accountable.
Feel free to contact Chief of Police, Mr. John Welter at (714) 765-1900 and
demand that he get involved because his subordinates and sub divisions not only
deprived a needy elephant of proper care while in Anaheim, but, they also let a
criminal loose despite of ample testimonies from the eyewitnesses about a
civilian being assaulted by the accused.
Aforementioned incident occurred while the circus crew along with its
innocent slaves was leaving the town on August 7, 2011. Our greatest fear is
that this particular elephant will be abused and terrorized further in order to
prepare her for the show starting on August 10, 2011, in Ontario, CA. She and
other unfit earthlings will be forced to perform the unnatural tricks despite of
their physically and mentally deteriorated conditions. I must admit, when I saw
her struggling to climb on the ramp, I thought she will get beaten brutally and
when she collapsed, I really wished that if she passes away, she will no longer
be tortured and forced to perform unnatural tricks.
At the Honda Center, one Terror show patron with his family was saying that animal torture is a thing of the past and does not take place now. Please forward this message to your friends to remind all that the terror, torture, and killing of innocent fellow earthlings has continued uninterruptedly and needs to be stopped completely ASAP.
