SAVING ABUSED ELEPHANTS: FROM CIRCUS TO SANCTUARY
BENEFITING: Wildlife SOS
ORGANIZER: WILDLIFE SOS
EVENT DATE: JUL 11, 2017THE STORY:
Wildlife SOS wrote -
Behind the bright lights and colorful costumes, the circus hides a devastating secret. Performing elephants, stolen from the wild as babies, and then beaten into submission, stand mournfully swaying with their tightly shackled feet fixed in their own filth. Showtime. The bull-hook scars on their emaciated bodies are hidden beneath garishly coloured costumes and they are lead by fear into the circus ring to perform uncomfortable and dangerous tricks for the amusement of a naive audience. The circus is supposed to be entertaining – but there is nothing funny about pain, there is nothing amusing about cruelty, and there is nothing amazing about an animal being forced to do something for fear of torture. Suffering is no joke. Abuse is not entertainment.
In 2015, Wildlife SOS launched its circus elephant campaign, with the bold declaration that we would be rescuing every last elephant suffering quietly in India’s circuses. We’ve already rescued 8 and the current estimate is that there may be another 50 elephants still waiting to be rescued. Once rescued, the elephants will have the safety, care and protection of the Wildlife SOS sanctuary – and the freedom to be elephants, not entertainers. Even though illegal, circuses still profit from keeping elephants and we don’t intend to give up until we rescue all of them. We need YOUR help to save the remaining elephants and to help them recover from decades of torture.
Show your support for Wildlife SOS’ circuses elephant rescues. Let’s make this the greatest show of compassion on earth.
