Elephants in India to be freed from zoos and circuses

Published 11/17/09

All elephants living in Indian zoos and circuses will be moved to wildlife parks and game sanctuaries where the animals can graze more freely. The decision affects around 140 elephants in 26 zoos and 16 circuses in the country. The order followed complaints from animal rights activists about elephants that are kept in captivity and often chained for long hours.

The chaining of elephants is one of our charges against Ringling Bros. in our Federal trial for the circus's abuse of elephants.

Bird breeder cited for cruelty to animals

Published 11/03/09

The city’s Animal Care Division seized 111 birds last month from an Aurora home last month, claiming that the animals were treated cruelly and forced to live in inhumane conditions. According to court documents, the officer found dirty cages with no water, bedding soiled with feces and several dead mice. The woman is facing several charges related to infractions to the city code, including cruelty to animals, the endangerment of the health and life of an animal, failure to remove feces and humane care charges related to the lack of potable water. The possible fines for the misdemeanor charges range from $15 to $1,000, plus one year in jail.

Home to over 500 non-human primates, including vervets, baboons and macaques, the sanctuary strives to help these primates heal from their pasts.

A lifetime of misery

Published 10/16/09

A lifetime of misery is what elephants endure in circuses. They are carted in box cars or trucks from city to city for the majority of the year, forced to perform unnatural tricks under threat of beatings with bullhooks, chained for hours on end, and separated from their families — all for just a few minutes of mindless entertainment.
