Many people are asking where the animals will go after the circus closes.The Elephants will be held at Kenneth Feld's(the owner of #RinglingBros) #CenterforElephantConservation in #PolkCity Florida. There they are still prodded with bullhooks, routinely chained and kept indoors on concrete floors at night. They are also bred at this location(their babies to be used at some yet to be determined venue) and used for cancer research. The other animals(lions/tigers/camels/kangaroos etc) will "go to suitable homes". We cannot trust the word of an organization that has been abusing and breaking animals for years. While it is great news that the circus has closed this situation, and the fate of these animals, needs to be kept public and monitored closely. All of these animals deserve to live out the remainder of their lives in accredited sanctuaries Image via @shannonelizabeth 📷 Chris O'Meara

The look of admiration! Just kidding she had just slobbered all over my shirt in search of more carrots as I posed for a picture & I was caught off guard. But yes, of course admiration too!! #centerforelephantconservation #alifetimeofmemories #ringlingbros

I'm blessed with the opportunity to bond with these magnificent animals daily. Looking forward to visiting all of them at the @ringlingbros #centerforelephantconservation #elephantappreciationday #RinglingBros

You've GOT to be kidding me. No. That's a f*%#king training center not a sanctuary! Were we all duped? The whole point of retiring the circus was to give animals like this a peaceful, happy life. #Repost @obviousbutamazing with @repostapp

Fact! #ringlingbros is NOT retiring their forever horrifically tortured #elephants to a sanctuary. They are being moved to #kennethfeld #centerforelephantconservation in #florida There over fifty elephants, beaten, chained, babies ripped from mothers and experimented on. The same man that has #kidnapped them from freedom to torture them to learn the unnatural tricks for the pathetic #circus still gets to own them and abuse them. #wtf Shut him down. They have been held prisoner their whole lives. They deserve some peace. Elephants are the most deep thinking, caring, thoughtful loving souls. Demand they go to a true sanctuary. This is another embarrassment of our ethics in the United States. They do not belong to us. #boycottthecircus #animalcruelty #compassion @leonardodicaprio @mileycyrus @billmaher @ivankatrump @iamnikkireed @liamhemsworth @chelseahandler @mike.pence @iamabfalecbaldwin @justintheroux @lisavanderpump @bethostern @chuckschumer @usdagov

The barbaric #RinglingBros #circus is gone for good, however the animals tortured in their shows still need our help. Do not believe the lies about sanctuaries & conservation facilities. Like the elephants who were retired from their shows in 2016, many of the animals used in Ringling shows face treacherous fates. The fight is not over.

The elephants who were once used in Ringling shows were shipped to Ringling’s breeding & training compound, where they are used for cancer experiments at the disingenuously named #CenterforElephantConservation (CEC). Some elephants are chained on concrete floors for up to 23 hours a day. Elephants who are chained on hard surfaces are prone to arthritis, infection & psychological stress. #CEC records show that most of the elephants have foot or leg problems related to intensive restraint. Ultimately chaining can lead to premature death.

#Pregnant elephants at the CEC are chained by two or three legs for at least two weeks prior to their due dates. One elephant was filmed giving birth with 3 legs chained. Babies are forcibly separated from their frantic mothers. One #baby was kept in chains for four months, except for about 40 minutes a day when she was trained. In the wild elephants are active for 18 hours per day, foraging, socializing, taking dust baths & exploring home ranges that span hundreds of miles. At the CEC, females are left in unnaturally small social groups, while males are kept isolated & behind bars. Elephants imprisoned at this hell hole are still hit with bullhooks, heavy batons with a sharp steel hook on one end, & are shocked with electric prods. Tuberculosis runs rampant, claiming the lives of at least 8 #elephants at the CEC.new No #elephant in Ringling’s hands will ever step foot into the wild or ease the plight of endangered wild populations. Breeding elephants behind closed doors is NOT a form of conservation. This is not a sanctuary. It's a breeding & testing facility. We need to keep pressure on #RinglingBrothers to retire all of these animals to accredited sanctuaries so they have one last chance

MOST RECENT

Throw back: to the time a group of us from work got to go to the #centerforelephantconservation #ringlingbros we got to see all the Elephant that weren't in show at the time (now not only are none in show but #thegreatestshowonearth has also come to an end) but this place is really great they take care of the elephants and work to do research to help wild elephants. Also really neat I used to go as a child to the #ringlingbros #circus and one year they had baby #elephants as the stars of the show Romeo and Juliet and when we went Romeo was there as was one of his babies, I thought that was so cool!! #travel #conservation #animals 🐘

Please sign the petition. These elephants need our voices NOW! - Repost from @donnamaria1961 - 💔🐘💔

Yes its great news that Ringling Brothers is now a bad memory that lasted almost 150 years. The traveling circus part of the Elephants lives may be over, but the lives they live are still very cruel.
This is absolutely not a sanctuary environment. Its elephants chained up for 23 hours a day on concrete inside a warehouse. Its a forced breeding program where babies are taken from their Mothers and beaten into submission to fear the trainers and the Bullhooks. A weapon thats very similar to a fireplace poker.
In the wild elephants are active for about 18 hours a day. Chains do not belong on their legs.
The females always stay with their Mothers and they live similar lifespans, and have strong emotional ties to family as humans do.
At the Center for Elephant Conservation, they are still deprived of everything they need. Please tag and repost. We desperately need signatures, and we can't stop now. They will need our voices and our signatures until these Elephants are no longer any where near Feld Entertainment.
By the way, the baby elephant shown being born was euthanized because it broke it's pelvis during a circus act where the baby lost its balance and fell. This Mother was never given any bonding time. And she was chained up during her pregnancy and delivery.
Shut this business down. Shame on @ringlingelephantcenter for their animal cruelty.
Hate is not a strong enough word. Feld Entertainment is an evil company built on animal abuse for profit.
