    How ironic that the Mayor’s children charity continues to promote an event that uses elephants and other wild circus animals
    that have been abused with bullhooks, whips and tasers to train and control
    them. How many children who have benefited from this
    fundraiser would attend a circus if they knew how badly the animals they love are treated and live just to entertain them? None of them would go, they know what it feels like to be treated badly through no fault of their own.

    Our leaders, educators and business community can no longer ignore the latest science,research and studies that have documented the connections and links between animal cruelty, child & elder abuse and domestic violence.
