Save Elephants I believe that elephants should not be trained this way [using chains and claw-sticks].! I think they should trained but not this way. Some elephants in circuses get hit with a clawstick. Elephant hide is thick as bark on an ancient tree, but a claw stick can pierces it like a leaf. Because Stella was hit with the claw-stick it caused Stella to bleed. Elephants should be fed correctly. Stella wasn’t fed enough and her skin was baggy. Stella was only fed a small amount of food, less than she would eat in the wild. Elephants should be kept in Zoos instead of circuses or in the wild in Africa. The elephants and gorillas aren’t supposed to be held in a mall. In the mall, the animals were treated poorly. I do not believe elephants should be trained and kept in circuses. They should be left in the wild to roam free. If they are in a circus, they should be moved to a zoo.
