Elephant Cruelty in the Shrine Circus

We’re all busy, but please take a few minutes to help those who are powerless and suffer at the hands of human greed and ignorance.

An elephant in a Shrine Circus in Pennsylvania kicked and killed his trainer.

Elephants in circuses suffer from brutal training and treatment, are forced to spend hundreds of hours in small travelling containers, and are deprived of everything instinctual to their nature.

Please voice your outrage over keeping elephants in circuses.


Here is info and graphic videos of how elephants suffer in circuses:

“Every elephant that comes here searches out someone that she then spends most all of her time with,” says sanctuary co-founder Carol Buckley.

It’s like having a best girlfriend, Buckley says – “Somebody they can relate to, they have something in common with.”

Debbie has Ronnie. Misty can’t live without Dulary.

Those are pachyderm-pachyderm pairs. But perhaps the closest friends of all are Tarra and Bella.

That would be Tarra the 8,700 pound Asian elephant. And Bella. The dog.
