Abuse of circus elephants

Synthian Sharp and Tim Gorski discuss the making of the movie about circus elephants, elephant trekking, and the use of elephants in the entertainment industry, "How I Became an Elephant." The video, which details the abuse of elephants in Asia, follows 14 year old Juliette West as she assists in the rescue of a female elephant which has been disabled as a result of the abuse she suffered at the hands of elephant trainers and breeders. Before you take your children to the circus, you should be aware that circuses can ONLY get elephants to do tricks like elephant painting and other performances, by breaking them through horrific abuse first.
