Is Ringling Bros. legitimate in its message to save elephants?

Asked by: bzjeung
  • Yes, they are humane.

    Yes, the Ringling Brothers are legitimate in their message to save elephants, because they are in a unique position to make people aware of the issue. The elephants that live in the circus are better taken care of than most elephants. The Ringling Brothers love the animals that they work with, and want everyone to know it's important to save the elephants.

  • Ringling Bros. Wants to save their elephants!

    Ringling Bros. Has long been accused of abusing and exploiting their Asian elephants. Perhaps in the past they have. But now, I believe that they are a legitimate organization, with one of their goals elephant conservation. Consider that they have spent millions of dollars to maintain a world class facility for their elephants (Center for Elephant Conservation), spent hundreds of thousands to cure tuberculosis in elephants, and won against animal rights groups to prove they were not abusing their elephants. Honestly, with the media spotlight on them, they couldn't wipe their sleeve on an elephant without someone knowing.

  • No no NO

    RINGLING BROS ARE LIARS!!!!!!! Don't believe anything that comes out of their mouths!!! It's lie after lie after lie. These elephants do not deserve the pain and torture they've been put through!! I H8 U RINGLING BROS, they deserve a spanking with a cane. Let them know what it feels like to be an elephant #saynotoringlingbros

  • Elephants are being tortured in the circus

    Elephants should be in the wild here they belong. They don't deserve to have to do all these tricks out of fear just for our entertainment. I've always thought that the elephants were really smart to do these kind of things, but now I know that they are being tortured with bull hooks and other stuff. Elephants need to be taken out of the circus

  • No no NO

  • A show of lies!

    If Ringling Bros. Claims to help elephants, can you explain why they stab and electrocute them? If they really are helping, the damage they do makes up for it. Tell me, if you liked cats and dogs so you donated to PETA, but abused your pets, who would that make you?

  • Look at Ringling's History

    Although Ringling has an impressive, and probably expensive, campaign to protect elephants, there is no way to take them seriously seeing as they kidnap the same elephants for use in their shows, and treat them horribly. Bzjeung said that Ringling has spent millions for a world class facility for elephants, yet if they really feel this strongly, why do they stab elephants with bullhooks in their shows? Bzjeung also mentioned that they won against animal rights groups, but this was not because they were not found to be abusing their animals. The ASPCA acted irresponsibly and bribed a witness, thus making the case invalid. Ringling was fined the largest USDA fine in history for animal abuse!

  • Ringling Bros is in the business of entertaining people, not conserving elephants.

    Elephants are not an endangered species. Ringling Bros. Is in business to make a profit. Why would a company that must make a profit to survive spent its money to conserve a species of animal that is not endangered? It is implausible that Ringling Bros. Has elephant conservation as one of its goals.
