Once you learn about the abusive methods used by Ringling to train their wild animals behind closed doors you will never feel the same way about animal circuses.
Sammy Haddock trained baby elephants at Ringling’s Center for Elephant Conservation and took numerous pictures of these training sessions that happen twice a day for months, years or as long as it takes to break these baby elephants spirits. "The baby elephant is slammed to the ground," Haddock says. "See its mouth is wide open? It's screaming bloody murder. It doesn't have its mouth open for a carrot."
Tippi Hedren founder of The Shambala Preserve talks about big cats and circus cruelty.
This recent video is narrated by Bob Barker former host of Price is Right called, “No Fun for Elephants“ To many, it looks like harmless fun, but elephants pay a heavy price for the few minutes of entertainment they provide when performing in circus shows.
