Last Saturday, as the Cirkus Arenas was parading three elephants through the streets of Karrebæksminde, Denmark, the animals protested with a display that left little doubt as to how they feel about being held captive and forced to perform.
When a trainer reportedly began beating one of the elephants, all three broke out of their formation. In a video taken by an onlooker, the animals seemingly stare down their abusers before searching in vain for a place to run and finally toss a parked car.
The elephants didn’t hurt anyone, but this video makes it clear that elephants do not want to spend their lives in chains performing meaningless tricks for fleeting human amusement.
