I don’t like PETA. No, correct that. What I don’t like is PETA’s tactics and messaging. Their publicity stunts (many extreme in concept & execution) have caused the group to become a laughing stock to most people. Sadly, their cooked up stunts drowns out the very real topic of cruelty to animals.
This morning I happened on this series of photos about Ringling Bros. using electro shock to train the elephants used in their shows. The more I investigated the angrier I got. It is hard not to knowing about the intelligence of these great animals.
PETA is right on what is happening as it relates to the treatment of elephants by Ringling Bros. Circus.
