In the circus habitat, elephants are not taught how to care for themselves like the ones in the wild are. Because they are taken care of for so long by humans, they can not live on their own in the wild. If the elephants are released after being captivated for entertainment, they will die from not knowing what to do. The AWA does not enforce the humane animal rights, and that results in populations

Deborah Nelson's article “Ringling Brothers Circus’s Treatment of Elephants is Cruel” says more should be done to help hurting Elephants.

Nelson says for years nothing has been done. Videos have been released of the beatings and still nothing.
Animal abuse is displayed in the novel Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen by describing the animal’s living conditions and how the trainers treat them compared to circuses in current society. Passive animal cruelty is an indirect way of animal abuse,
From the circus to television shows, animals are used constantly to entertain the masses as they are forced to act out in order to promote a business and help them gain money. Rather helping the enterprise obtain more green, they are forcing these poor creatures to forcefully act, some of these instances lead to animal retaliation. For instance, Tilikum, the killer whale from Seaworld, constantly killed many of the employees as Tilikum tries to convey those that he does not belong in the entertainment platform, but many executes disagree and forced the whale to perform many dangerous stunts, leading to Tilikum’s death. To the entertainment businesses out there, these animals aren’t actors and they should be going through physical altercations
For centuries, zoos have been traditionally known to be the ultimate place for families to have an enjoyable and adventurous time. Ever since I was little, I remembered going to the zoo quite frequently. Right as I entered the gates of the animal kingdom, the sight of colorful birds, the sound of children’s laughter and the smell of the earthly animals intensified my excitement even more. Seeing elephants, tigers and many more wild animals in person had made my overall experience unforgettable. But as we begin to unravel the hidden truth about zoos, we begin to ask ourselves if it is ethical to continue to support places like zoos in keeping innocent animals in captivity.
Animals our taken from their natural habitats and locked up in small spaces, the small spaces, the concrete floors and the unnatural social groupings are slowly driving the elephants insane while their feet and bodies deteriorate before our eyes.” such as an “ Asian elephant in the wild may roam freely over a range of 150,000 acres the show consists of just two acres of walkable ground subdivided into five smaller yards – not nearly enough room for the three resident elephants, Billy, Tina,
Are zoos good or bad? Most people think that they are good… but they just do not know about the other side of zoos.

Zoos are unethical and should let all there animals out because they are bad for humans, hurt and separate animals, and Unhealthy for animals.
Two of the petitions were rejected on differing grounds. The third petition was thrown out for lack of the right to appeal. According to Jonathan Reuters, in 2012 the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) filed a false lawsuit on the Ringling and Bros. Circus. ASPCA and others originally filed suit in 2000 against Feld Entertainment, producer of the circus, accusing the Virginia-based company of mistreating the Asian elephants that perform in its shows.
How does the Ivory trade affect elephants. Ivory trade is bad because it means that elephants are being killed for no reason. Elephants are going to go extinct if the Ivory trade does not stop. Poachers are killing elephants for their tusks so they can sell them to get medicine for their families.
In the valleys and forests of Africa roam the largest land mammals today. Herds of African elephants march proudly through the savanna, presenting themselves like statues: proud, tall, and and powerful. Pair their magnificent size along with their intimidating trunks and sword-like tusks, and the beasts are seemingly invincible. However, these marvelous creatures of the animal kingdom may very well have met their match. Valleys where elephants used to roam are now littered with the bodies of those murdered by hunters— their tusks and leather skin are no match against the deadly rifles and traps.
In the passage, the reader will notice a tone that is serious, informational, and formal. At one point in the passage it states, “In training trials, a mahout would walk with his elephant to the single available rope end and train his animal to pick up and pull the rope by using vocal commands,” (4). This shows the author of the passage was giving out information in a formal tone because he was giving straight information about the training trials of the elephants. Unlike the passage, the article has a more engaging conversational tone. In the article it says, “Elephants know when they need to lend a helping hand- or rather trunk,” (1).
Animal trafficking is not any better than human trafficking. Do not just sit by and let this continue, stop buying the tickets, and stop letting people force these animals to do tricks for food! “ The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that’s the essence of inhumanity”. - George

Every day, there are hundreds of incidents where animals are abused, tortured, and taken advantage of by humans. Animals are bred for the sole purpose of profit in many cases, such as animal testing and use of animal goods. While those who eat animals should not be frowned upon, one should put in effort to purchasing animal goods that were humanely raised, and one should not support the buying of products produced by animals shoved into cages so small that it cannot turn around or even live comfortably. One recent example of this cruelty could be found within the Hermes fashion company, where baby alligators are slaughtered for the sole purpose of making a watchband to fulfill the vanity of humans. Humans are given authority over animals, but this does not allow anyone the power to abuse animals for the purposes of fulfilling vanity and making
