That Animal Rights proponents have spent so much of their member's money and their own time to follow this up and keep following it up is a good thing.

That the law does not or cannot hear it does not mean that Ringling Bros. is NOT abusing their elephants (if abuse constitutes hitting the elephants with sharp objects (whatever they are called bullhooks ...or ticklers... they are designed to inflict pain thus compliance) or chaining them for lengthly periods. Elephants are complex, sentient, beings, we are alot like them. Social groups, problem solving skills, deep maternal care, far ranging in their natural habitat. The Elephants owned by Ringling Bros. deserve better than to be trucked about the country, beaten and forced to perform for the witless entertainment of uneducated patrons in medieval circuses. One day, the Animal Rights Groups will win because it IS right. (“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
Mahatma Gandhi )
