QFtP: "Marie, who was taken from the wild at age two, has been performing for the past 38 years ... Schell was also taken from the wild and was used for breeding for 25 years before being sold to the circus. She has now been performing for 23 years."
Please have mercy on those poor souls!

Elephants are not here on earth to keep entertaining humans! Please retired Marie & Schell to a sanctuary to live the rest of their lives in comfort which has never been in their entire life! Have compassion for other beings life as your own is treasured! I signed, Thanks Teresa.

Signed. All elephants need to be taken out of these circuses and placed in sanctuaries. They are a social creature and deserve the companionship with others of their own kind. It would be nice if they could be returned to the wild but they most likely would be slaughtered for their tusks as so many have.

signed and invited friends. It's a shame that we have to ask people to sign, it is so obvious, of course these poor animals should be released and be taken care for. These two elephants shouldn't have been in that bloody circus in the first place. They were treated badly and now these people question what to do with them! I can't believe it, but then again, they're circus(read. moneyminded so called humans). What else can one expect?!
