TRUE STORIES (Video Link Below):

“After 3 years working with elephants in the circus, I can tell you that they live
in confinement and they are beaten all the time when they don’t perform
properly.”
-Sworn testimony of former Ringling employee, Tom Rider

When Ringling was in Jacksonville, Fla., Kenny, a 3-year-old elephant, was
obviously sick. According to the circus's animal care log, he was "not eating or
drinking" and was "bleeding from his rectum…had a hard time standing, was
very [shaky], walked very slowly." However, against veterinary advice, this
seriously ill baby elephant was forced into the ring for three shows. The log
later noted that Kenny "passed a large amount of blood from his rectum" and
that at 11:30 p.m., "the elephant was dead."

That's not all: U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) investigators found large
scars on the rear legs of Doc and Angelica, two other baby elephants. The
scars were from rope burns inflicted when Ringling ripped these babies away
from their mothers as infants. The USDA found that the handling of Doc and
Angelica was in violation of the Animal Welfare Act and "caused unnecessary
trauma, behavioral stress, physical harm, and discomfort to these two
elephants."

Think, too, of Clyde, a once-healthy 2-year-old lion who was shipped to the U.
S. all the way from Spain. Ringling locked Clyde in a sweltering train boxcar. As
the train crossed the Mojave Desert, the temperature rose to 109°F. The
circus trainmaster refused repeated requests to stop the train and check on
the lions in the terrible heat. When the train finally stopped, Clyde was lying on
his side with his tongue hanging out, and he was struggling for breath. He died
within minutes.

The cause of Clyde's death was clearly heatstroke and dehydration. But
brazen Ringling officials prohibited circus employees from speaking to U.S.
government officials investigating Clyde's death! Ringling even installed a set
of water misters in the lions' boxcars before government inspectors arrived at
the scene in order to create the illusion that the circus had been providing the
lions with relief from the heat.

Next in this litany of horrors is Benjamin, a 4-month-old elephant. During a stop
in Texas, Benjamin drowned in a pond. Elephants are usually excellent
swimmers, but Benjamin had never learned to swim because he had been
taken away from his mother when he was little. One of Ringling's handlers
followed the baby elephant into the pond and began poking him with a
bullhook—an instrument that Benjamin had learned to fear—and forced him
into deeper water. In water above his head and fearing he would be beaten,
Benjamin drowned.


That is the truth of the Ringling Bros circus!
