A Ringling Bros. Circus Elephant had been shot in the neck during a drive-by shooting
recently, by fools in a car in New Jersey. The shooting was deliberate. First time in
history that an Elephant was severely injured by a gun shot while traveling with the Circus.
True story. Heard it on CNN. These gentle pachyderms have endured centuries of abuse.
I implore these politicians to prevent and prohibit any further brutality of Elephants through
legislation and put a halt to the Circus circuit.
Thank you Cher

Better yet, we should ban all animals from the circus. These jerks will find other ways to abuse the elephants, but this is a step in the right direction.
