Help Keep Elephants out of Circuses

An elephant in a Shrine Circus in Pennsylvania killed his trainer. Elephants in circuses suffer from brutal training and treatment, are forced to spend hundreds of hours in small traveling containers, and are deprived of everything instinctual to their nature.

Here is info and graphic videos of how elephants suffer in circuses:   http://www.circuses.com/
Here is info on the Shriner’s mission:  http://www.alepposhriners.com/shrinersmission.html

Please voice your outrage over keeping elephants in circuses.

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
