The text states “a yearlong Mother Jones investigation shows that Ringling elephants spend most of their long lives either in chains or on trains, under constant threat of the bullhook, or ankus- the menacing tool used to control elephants.” although Feld Entertainment states that, ‘ "they are trained through positive reinforcement, a system of repetition and reward that encourages an animal to show off its innate athletic abilities"’(Nelson). Feld Entertainment (a live show production company which owns a number of traveling shows) tried to convince the public that their animals are put through positive and rewarding training. However, a lengthy investigation proves otherwise, noting that animals spend nearly their entire life in captivity and are in fact trained using inhumane methods. “Circus training methods include
Then, we have Babar the Elephant who lives a carefree life until his mother is killed by hunters sacrificing herself for the herd’s safety. As the story continues young Babar is faced with the same situation and brave like his mother risk his life to save the herd as well. Amazingly, he 's not murdered only separated from his family so and learns to survive on his own. Personally, I think it’s sad how Elephants are killed by polluters for their tusks. In King Leopold’s Ghost, he used his power to rob Africa of its natural wealth which included ivory and many other resources.
Jacobs, is a horror story because it talks about the controversy between the cursed monkey’s paw, and the consequences of people wishing on the monkey’s paw. The first citation that was made was to show that the Whites were greedy so they immediately wish for two hundred pounds. Then a representative from the company herbert worked at, came to inform Mr. and Mrs. White of Herbert’s death. After, Mrs. White urges Mr. White to wish Herbert back to life, now that they now the paw actually does really grant wishes. Mr. White makes the wish to bring Herbert back and Herbert comes back to the house and knocks at the door.
Horton Hatches the Egg “I mean what I said and I said what I meant… An elephant’s faithful One hundred per cent!” (Seuss 11) . Going through a terrible storm, a frosty winter, humiliated by his friends, and sent to a circus- despite the disastrous circumstances he encountered, just as he promised, Horton the elephant protected Mayzie the bird’s egg. Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr.Seuss is widely read aloud by parents and teachers, for its important qualities of faith and patience it displays. However, among nuclear families with adopted children, it may be controversial of whether the book is to be read to their children or not, for the story creates a strong sense of connection to the topic of adoption. The story starts off with Mayzie, a lazy bird, complaining of how weary she is, having to stay at her nest all day to warm her egg up.
Many people have memories of visiting The Zoo as a child. Watching the gorillas, tigers and many other animals was a long awaited thrill. Feeding the giraffes caused one to jump up and down with excitement; now, picture all this suddenly disappearing. What if all this thrill and excitement were to be confined to just an image searched on the Internet, just because such animals became extinct? Unfortunately, this picture might not be far from becoming our reality.
They joined in religious festivals, guarded temples, presided over weddings, carried generals into battle, helped built the Taj Mahal, captivated audiences at circuses and zoos. They are often main characters in cartoons, a symbol of royalty in Thailand, and also helped clean the rubble after the deadly tsunamis in Asia in 2004. Elephants have played quite a unique and diverse role in human history. However the relationship between humans and elephants is very unique yet it can be very dangerous. Humans are currently driving elephants to extinction, by destroying their habitat, leaving them vulnerable to desiase, shooting them when they approach farms, and poaching or illegally killing about 35,000 elephants a year for their ivory tusks.
Many people say life is full of obstacles. That goes very well with two characters, one a kid named Alfred from, The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp by Rick Yancey, and a lion from the short story, The lion and the elephant by Jan Payne. Even though one character is from a long adventure story and another from a short fable they show readers that life is tough and full of obstacles. Life is tough and comes with obstacles, that goes very well with the lion from, The lion and elephant. In the beginning of the story the lion was scared of how the cockerel would crow every morning and he would cry “go away” till he would go but the cockerel would not go.

The African Elephant makes far more abiotic differences in their environment by creating things like lakes while the Tiger Shark has mainly biotic factors and many of there changes in the ecosystem are a result of them eating fish and turtles and less about them shaping the land. The Elephants and the Alex Hajdukiewicz Keystone Species
In addition, another example of this thesis happens later in the book when Jade characterizes the elephants. To emphasize, page 20 says, “See, what I really like is that no matter what high stress of this going on in my water in my world as a whole (Christmas, SATs, natural disasters, plane crashes, having to give a speech and being worried to death I might puke), there are the elephants, doing their thing. Just being themselves... They 're just having another regular elephant day. Not worrying, only being.” This exemplifies that Jade is very interested in the elephants due to their enthralling characteristics.
Okapi Meet an animal who was not discovered until the early 20th century! Unlike many others, the okapi, native to it’s “hidden” habit of the Ituri Rainforest in central Africa, used its unique physical appearance and shy, elusive personality to outsmart researchers for centuries (“Okapi”-A-Z Animals). A relative of the well-known giraffe, the okapi proves to be one of the most unique, interesting, and confusing animals in the world. Many of us have seen a horse, a donkey, or a zebra at the zoo. On the first sight of an okapi, one would think it is a cross-breed of the three!
