Buzz Petition

According to a petition on Care2, an African elephant by the name of Ramboline has been suffering in isolation for thirty years at a circus in Denmark called Cirkus Trapeze. Reportedly born in the wild in Zimbabwe, Ramboline was separated from her mother and forced to perform tricks at the circus, where she has no natural habitat and is isolated from any other elephants.

The petition’s writer reports that the circus was given orders to improve Ramboline’s living conditions in 2015. It took a year for the circus to abide by these orders, but not much has changed – Ramboline is still completely alone, exploited to perform for profits, and exhibiting signs of sadness and distress.

We have seen many cases that prove over and over again that elephants belong in the wild, not captivity. In circuses, elephants are forced to perform unnatural tricks that are typically taught via violent measures such as starvation and the use of bullhooks. Many elephants in captivity develop fatal foot conditions and arthritis due to being forced to stand on hard concrete, rather than the soft grass of their native homes. This is just one example of the ailments these animals experience. Many prominent circuses, such as Ringling Bros. (which is due to shut down at the end of May 2017), have recognized the suffering of captive elephants and ceased using them in performances.

If you are saddened by Ramboline’s story, please take a moment to sign this petition demanding that she live the remainder of her years at a sanctuary where she can enjoy life – she should with other elephants, socializing and splashing in the mud in a natural environment.

Please share this story with your friends to help spread awareness about why circuses are not a happy or healthy place for wild animals to be. The single greatest thing you can do to help save circus animals like Ramboline is to never support circuses. Money talks, and when the demand for this type of  “entertainment” ceases to exist, circuses will have no choice but to stop using wild animals in their performances.
