At Ringling Bros.’ so-called “Center for Elephant Conservation,” elephants are chained on cement floors for up to 23 hours a day. READ More From Peta
Females are forcibly bred and deliver while tied up and then separated from their young.
Older males who are considered “unmanageable” are kept isolated behind bars, and they’re all under the constant threat of being gouged with bullhooks—sharp metal weapons resembling fireplace pokers—or shocked with electric prods.
I don’t know what sort of twisted reality these companies are living in, but concrete, chains, and bullhooks are not part of “conservation,” and exposing kids to abused elephants will not have a positive impact.
