I just heard a radio advertisement for the Shrine Circus which said "the elephants are back," as if this is a good thing.

I am appalled the Shrine Circus cares more about money than they do about a living, breathing beautiful creature like the majestic elephant.

Why anyone would choose to attend, and therefore support, a circus that believes elephants should spend their lives in cramped trucks and cages going from town to town is beyond me.

Shame on the Shrine Circus for back-peddling their decision to stop using elephants and tigers in their shows, as most other circuses with a heart and conscience have done.

If you disagree with me, I ask you to please try and imagine the tragic and unnatural life led by these noble creatures as circus "performers." It is heartbreaking and incredibly cruel. Please do not support that cruelty.
