In the Ringling Bros. circus, elephants are beaten, hit, poked, prodded, and jabbed with sharp hooks, sometimes until bloody. Ringling breaks the spirit of elephants when they're vulnerable babies who should still be with their mothers. Constant travel means that animals are confined to boxcars, trailers, or trucks for days at a time in extremely hot and cold weather, often without access to basic necessities such as food, water, and veterinary care. Elephants, big cats, bears, and primates are confined to cramped and filthy cages in which they eat, drink, sleep, defecate, and urinateall in the same place. In November 2011, Ringling was fined $270,000 by the USDA for multiple violations of the Animal Welfare Act in its mistreatment of elephants, tigers, zebras, and other exotic animals. This is the largest fine ever assessed against an animal exhibitor under the Animal Welfare Act. Ringling has made history as The Cruelest Show on Earth.
