For those of you who don't know what these elephants and other animals have been through, please keep reading... Zoos & circuses often prevent animals from engaging in basic natural behaviors such as flying, swimming, running, hunting, climbing, scavenging, and selecting a mate. The restrictions of captivity cause mental and physical frustration that often leads to neurotic behaviors, such as pacing, bar-biting, and self-mutilation.
So please everyone don't stop campaigning! The rest of these animals need your help!
What you can do: Never attend circuses that use animals, instead of going to the zoo, watch films of animals in their natural habitats performing normal behaviors such as walking, feeding, playing, mating, fighting etc, support groups that work to preserve habitats & reputable nonprofit sanctuaries that rescue & care for animals but don't sell, breed, or exhibit them, and last but not least if a circus comes to your town, write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper urging people not to attend & explain why.
