collars, bondage, and beatings: E.L. James' best-selling novel reads like a circus trainer's handbook. But unlike
the consenting couple in the book, elephants in circuses don't have a choice when
it comes to being dominated. And if beating elephants into submission and forcing them to perform painful
acts isn't 50 shades of wrong, then my safe word's not "PETA."
So as soon as your partner unties you, please
sign this "contract"
to help stop circus cruelty.
you have a general question for PETA and would like a response, please e-mail Info@peta.org. If you need to report cruelty to
an animal, please click

animal and if the abuse is taking place right now, please call your local
police department. If the police are unresponsive, please call PETA
immediately at 757-622-7382 and press 2.
