Thanks to many, many kind people around the world, PETA's
campaigns often reach even farther than the group's "official"
campaigners can, as we were reminded when we came across this picture of a mural
that someone had created in Szczecin, Poland, based on peta2's "Elephants Never Forget" campaign. In any language, the image of the bullhook and the sad, wounded elephant get the message across that circuses with captive
animals abuse and beat
them, so they're no place for pachyderms—or people who care about animals. Please join the worldwide movement to end circus cruelty today.
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
here. If you are reporting an animal in imminent danger and know where to find the
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.
