Circus elephant abuse

To the Editor:

Thank you, DeAnna Chadwick, for your letter to the editor highlighting the abuse of elephants in the circus industry (Nov. 10). The abuse these animals, and all circus animals, suffer is a crime, and I do not understand why this is tolerated, and glorified, in this country.

Google circus cruelty to animals for more information or read “Water for Elephants” for more understanding. I encourage everyone to research this subject before attending circus performances of any kind.
