I am afraid that your article about the freeing of Elephants is basically not true and at best is very naive. The circus has agreed, under pressure, to retire its Elephants to a private sanctuary. They will still live their lives, maybe several decades, in captivity and may still be subject abuses out of public view. All have suffered years of domination, cruelty, frustration, and boredom. Some may never be free from the damage that has been done to them and some may not even be able to live with others in a more social setting. The real truth is that it is perhaps the best of a bad situation and no one knows how it will really turn out. And what if the circus does go bankrupt? Who will feed and care for 43 Elephants which each can consume 300-600 pounds of food a day and drink 50 gallons of water?
