Circuses are slowly phasing out this disgusting exploitation. We went for a lovely stroll at the fair today, expected nothing more offensive than a few carnies. The goats, ponies, and donkeys at the petting zoo looked very well taken care of and were in a shady area. We looked over and were disgusted to see (very unexpectedly and on an 85 degree day) an elephant. Suited up for your pleasure. Why. Why in 2016 are we still allowing this?? This creature should be released to a sanctuary where it can roam free. Enough torture. This is so disgusting.
