Barnum & Bailey Circus at it again!
Contains violence. View at your discretion.

While this is one of the "milder" videos of elephant violence that I have seen, it's still what it is: cruel, undeserved violence.

I've never been to a circus, and I never will as long as these animals are subjected to inhumane treatment. Besides, they shouldn't be put into an unfamiliar environment and forced to do "tricks" and "feats" that they would otherwise not be doing in the wild.

And this is all for the sake of entertainment. As if humans could not find entertainment in the millions of other things that they could entertain themselves with. Pfft.

Spread the word.
