Bears, elephants, tigers, and other animals do not volunteer to leave their homelands and families in order to balance on balls, jump through rings of fire, and perform other menial tricks

I am huge fan of the elephant sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee. This is the website...
http://www.elephants.com/elecam/
I have never been there because it's hard to get to and it is not open to the public. They know the elephants have been through enough already.

Signed but this breaks my heart !!!!
Just let them go already!! I get so mad and the sadness is overwhelming. We all know how sensitive elephants are.

I don't know even know who the stupid idiotic person was that felt an elephant was made to stand on one leg... stupid. Anything for money and this goes way back .It's past time.This should not exist anymore for many many years. Never but lets stop it.

I agree wholeheartedly with Prima B.
Please please let them go to a sanctuary, let them have some semblence of a natural life living in nature for their golden years.

Noted, Tweeted, SIGNED PETITION, SHARED! What can I possibly say that I haven't already said about how cruelly elephants and other animals are treated in a circus? I hope they will be able to go to a sanctuary where they can finally feel as if they are in a more natural state (considering they should have never been in the 'circus' life to begin with.) - I know they are highly intelligent so surely they will know the difference. Honor them by doing the right thing for them after all they've been through...

Noted and signed - I have had more than enough of this rotten Ringling Circus now - clearly they do not want to listen and clearly we have been petitioning for way too long. Action is now needed - make their lives a living hell, make sure the animals are safe and torch their tents, break some bones, do whatever is necessary to shut them down for good.
