    That would be a little counterproductive, wouldn't it?

    I saw it a few weeks ago on the In Defense of Animals website. They've had a campaign for years to stop such cruelty to elephants, as well as other animals. Including gathering evidence and filing lawsuits. Hell, they're the only 'big' charity that's doing anything significant for wild horses. PETA does jack-all for animals, especially in comparison to just about any other animal charity.

    So one guy who is no longer with the company for whatever reason, is their source material? And there are tons of pics that are obviously NOT taken undercover. For a company to be around as long as RBBB, you would think shenanigans like this would have come under scrutiny years ago.

    PETA sucks anyway.

    That's not true, PETA euthanizes plenty of animals each year. That's doing something for animals, right?

    Through humane reward methods, like some zoos are doing now. And not taking them from their mothers long before they're ready.

    This is an interesting Catch-22.

    On the one hand, you have pretty horrible, frightening photos of elephant abuse, something that should be stopped.

    On the other hand, it's a site hosted by PETA, who kills almost all of the animals it frees from any abuse, because they think it's "humane" to "free" the animal since it's been, supposedly, too mentally fucked up to behave normally.

    So you've got ill-begotten freaks abusing elephants in the circus, and ill-begotten freaks campaigning to "free" animals so they can, in turn, kill them en masse.

    Nobody wins and the situation remains fucking shitty.

    PETA may be filled with nothing but horrible people, but ringling bros has been rather famous for animal abuse, ever since it was started.

    there's no reason to believe anything on that site is false. all of it is well documented elsewhere.
