In Defense of Animals' 2018 Ten Worst Zoos for Elephants

Goodbye, Ringling Brothers!

After 146 years of animal torture and abuse for the sake of “entertainment”, Ringling Brothers will be closing their doors! Animal rights activists have protested outside of shows for almost 4 decades to put an end to the unnecessary exploitation of elephants, tigers, lions, and other wild animals.

After removing elephants from their acts back in May 2016, Ringling Brothers representatives reported a significant drop in ticket sales. Read more about it, here.

2017 has already been a winning year for animals, and we’re just getting started! Sign petitions, go protest, and speak up for animals! We are on the winning side of history!
