Girl Disfigured in Elephant Assault at Endangered Ark


PETA has obtained courtroom information revealing {that a} lady sustained life-threatening accidents from being attacked throughout an encounter with an elephant on the Endangered Ark Basis in Oklahoma in March 2021. That’s why this morning, we fired off a letter to U.S. Division of Agriculture Director of Animal Welfare Operations Dr. Robert Gibbens, requesting an investigation into why this roadside zoo—related to Carson & Barnes Circus—has continued to supply harmful elephant encounters that seem to violate the federal Animal Welfare Act.

Along with this incident, which left the girl disabled and disfigured, interactions with captive elephants have resulted in dozens of human deaths and catastrophic accidents, together with in 2014 when an elephant from Endangered Ark crushed a person to loss of life. Regardless of this, guests to the roadside zoo are inspired to hand-feed, bathe, pet, and pose for selfies with elephants.

“This shoddy roadside zoo places folks in danger each time it promotes public contact occasions with burdened, abused elephants. PETA is asking on authorities to crack down on the ability earlier than another person will get maimed or killed and is urging folks by no means to go to any operation that’s within the enterprise of exploiting animals, for everybody’s sake.”

PETA Basis

Carson & Barnes’ head coach was beforehand filmed viciously attacking an elephant named Becky with a bullhook (a weapon resembling a fire poker) till she screamed in ache. Becky continues to be used for hands-on encounters at Endangered Ark. PETA notes that the Endangered Ark Basis Preservation Act (HB 3281), an insidious new invoice pre-filed within the Oklahoma Home of Representatives, is designed to exempt these abusive elephant-training practices from the state’s cruelty-to-animals code.

Take Motion for Elephants

Elephant calves study essential social and behavioral expertise from their moms and different family members, with whom they share intense emotional bonds. As an alternative of experiencing all this of their pure properties, elephants utilized by Carson & Barnes are exploited—made to do meaningless circus tips on the highway and put in harmful direct-contact encounters like bathing, feeding, and picture ops at Endangered Ark.

Utilizing elephants on this manner is an egregious type of speciesism—exploitation primarily based on species membership. Please politely urge Carson & Barnes to finish its merciless animal acts, ship the animals to respected sanctuaries, and spotlight its human expertise as a substitute.

Inform Carson & Barnes Circus to Finish All Merciless Animal Acts!
