Ringling Brothers announced ridding their circus of elephants by 2018.
I ask why not today?
In an interview, Kevin Field, owner of Ringling testified during a trail about the elephant's importance to the show -,
"The symbol of the 'Greatest Show on Earth' is the elephant, and that's what we've been known for throughout the world for more than a hundred years." Well, Kevin, the world's changed in a 100 years and its about time your organization understands the only place for wild animals is in the wild, where they belong. And while this is a victory for elephants, Field Entertainment has not yet agreed to rid their show of animals entirely.
Unlike Kevin, there are people who are supporting animals for the purpose of keeping them wild and do so not for profit and entertainment. Meet Eduardo from Black Jaguar White Tiger. Here's a man dedicated to helping wild animals . Visit his wonderful site http://www.blackjaguarwhitetiger.org/
