Ontario legislators are considering Bill 69--the Elephant Protection Act--which would spare elephants living in or traveling through Ontario from being beaten with bullhooks and spending hours on end in chains.

Thanks for posting Cal! Elephants should not be in Canada at all. A Zoocheck report:titled "The Sad State of Captive Elephants in Canada" details the terrible suffering they experience from confinement and our cold winters.

grown men need to get the bullhooks used on them. Just take good aim and hope it misses the head and falls on their brains. that of course is not between their ears Ann

All of this brutality and unending torture is breaking my heart. What in the world has happened to the human race that has caused us to sink so damn low! It just breaks my heart more and more every day. That is why all of us on Care2 are here. We have to be the voice that makes the difference because if we do not, nobody will. Very sadly signed and noted, as well as twittered.

If an animal is so powerful and so unwilling to be made a slave that it has to be constantly chained or threatened with bullhooks- maybe said animal shouldn't be used as a circus performer, hmmm?

I now boycott circuses & other "entertainment" organizations with animal shows. No matter how much they deny it, it's never about animal welfare. It's always about the money.

“Animals are God's creatures, not human property, nor utilities, nor resources, nor commodities, but precious beings in God's sight…Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion are in a special position to understand the awfulness of innocent suffering. The Cross of Christ is God's absolute identification with the weak, the powerless, and the vulnerable, but most of all with unprotected, undefended, innocent suffering.”— Reverend Andrew Linzey

Noted and action taken. I added a comment that it would be better still to ban all performances by elephants and exotic animals for entertainment and that Croatia has such a ban since 2004.

I just signed. Why are we still allowing circuses and animal acts to use these beautiful and intelligent creatures as a means for profit? They are not living enjoyable lives. Chains, ropes, bullhooks? Until elephants are banned from being used I wish people would stop bringing their kids to circuses and anywhere elephants are used for entertainment.

Thanks Cal for posting! Though I think that there should be a ban on having elephants in captivity at all as well!!!
