PETA US’s investigator traveled with Ringling’s Red Unit and documented routine, systemic abuse of elephants and tigers at the hands of multiple Ringling workers, including an animal superintendent, a Ringling head elephant trainer, and other Ringling trainers, handlers, and workers. The investigator also documented stereotypic behavior, which is typically seen in animals who are suffering from extreme stress caused by lack of anything to do, inability to move around, severe frustration, and desolation.
Unfortunately, cruelty to animals used in circuses can be found all over the world, including in India. To help animals here, please take a moment to write to the Ministry of Environment and Forests and ask them to ban the use of animals in circuses.
