Once the crew understood Rosie and she started to perform, the circus got an increase in visitors to their shows which rose there income and allowed the show to stay around for a little longer. The depression also was affected Jacob after his parents death and what led him to flee campus and hop on the the circus train. He realized he was left nothing and his father wasn’t taking any money from the community. "Apparently my father has been taking payment in the form of beans and eggs for nearly two years" (Gruen 19). Also, the time period that Water for Elephants took place in is a different period then what we are live in today.
Do you believe that over 400 animals are killed a month, 13 a day,1 every 2 hour all killed in zoos. That why we should ban zoos. The animals in the zoos are becoming more dangerous. Did you now that chimpanzees escaped at the Kansas city zoo. That means people next to or near the zoo could possible be hurt by stressed animals.
Orwell is told that the elephant has been seen destroying the village and even killing a man that Orwell meets up with later. The elephant’s destruction on the village represents imperialism destruction -- rampaging through the streets, knocking over food shelves, and invading people’s properties. Once the officer finds the elephant, he tells the readers, “As soon as I saw the elephant I knew with perfect certainty that I ought not to shoot him” (3). The author provides insight to his moral beliefs on how shooting the elephant is immoral and remorseful. Orwell made it clear to the reader which side he wants to be on, which in this case is the elephant’s side.
It is also shown in the study that, "[...] populations have decreased by seventy percent because of human-elephant conflict" ("Why World Elephant"). 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
One example is that some animals can get a disease called zoochosis and it is shocking what zoos will do when trying to hide it. For instance, “As Dr Keith Lindsay, a biologist with more than 30 years of experience in elephant research and conservation, has said, these are symptoms of “pathological, stereotypical behaviour that is common with disturbed animals in captivity, but which is never seen in the wild”. There are also cases of animals being given antidepressants to hide their unhappiness from visitors. In 2015 Auckland Zoo euthanised a gibbon, Iwani, because he was “severely depressed” and the zoo admitted they could not meet his welfare needs.”(An unnatural environment)This is significant because it shows that when zoos commit wrongs and take problems into their own hands it most often ends up worse.The amount of aquarium animals especially that have behavioral defects is very large and so are the consequences A study made by Captive Animals Protection Society proved that animals living in the water also suffer from this mental detrimention. This study also shows that 90% of the animals in the zoo have gotten this illness.
Active cruelty is defined as “cruelty inflicted with deliberate intent to harm an animal creating immediate pain and suffering” (“Animal”). Rosie is one of the most abused animals in the novel Water for Elephants. Rosie is abused with the bull hook at least three times throughout the book. One of the first scenes of Rosie’s active abuse is when the circus recently buys Rosie and an elephant car. August is in an irritable mood and stabs her multiple times with the bull hook to make her move into her elephant car, “August smacks her from behind…When August catches up, he whacks her again, this time hard enough that she raises her trunk, bellows, and scampers sideways” (Gruen 140).
On Nakhon Pathom Sam Phran Elephant Ground Zoo, tens of elephants fled from there and run on the streets. Perhaps of the cold weather, their back covered with the blankets which have the zoo logo. Henry asks David: ‘were they frightened by our crafts?’ David says: ‘hell knows.’ Gary at the end fort says: ‘I saw them running before we lowered our altitude, maybe they aware of something, animals know much earlier than human.’ David says: ‘so we 've to turn around and trace from the elephant source?’ Henry says: ‘agree.’ They tilt and turn back towards the zoo direction. Byko asks: ‘why you guys turn back?’ David says: ‘the area around the zoo may have some clue.’ Byko says to his own team: ‘ok boys, spend three planes continue scout the south direction, the others split two groups left and right heading to the zoo. Twenty minutes we meet at Bangkok sky.’ So seventeen Russian planes also make u-turn to head back north direction, the other three Russian plane heading south to search.
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. Elephant poachers all throughout the continent have contributed largely to the diminishment of the elephant population, resulting in conservation
At Busch Gardens a rollercoaster quit working while people were on it. “Florida firefighters were called to Busch Gardens to remove 16 passengers stuck on a roller coaster that stopped in the middle of its track, officials said”("Busch Gardens roller coaster stalls mid-ride”). The details continue on with, “The ride operator was unable to coax the cars back to the loading station, so Tampa Fire Rescue was called to the scene” ("Busch Gardens roller coaster stalls mid-ride”). When I went to Busch Gardens I rode the SheiKra five times. I’m glad this didn’t happen to me!
Animals our forced to live in an unreal stressful, and boring conditions. 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,
