The video above shows that elephants who were captured can have a second chance. They have one more shot at happiness and freedom. Shirley and Jenny are two crippled elephants who were once together at a circus. They were separated for more than 20 years, and found each other again at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. Elephants never forget, they say. Despite years of suffering, they are strong enough to allow themselves to develop bonds once again.
Mali, the sole elephant in Manila Zoo, deserves the same second chance. She was only 3 years old when she was ripped from her home in Sri Lanka and shipped to her small concrete space at the zoo. People's Ethical Treatment for Animals (PETA) is working to have Mali retire at a sanctuary, where she can have enough space to roam around freely and even see other elephants for the first time in decades.
What if we were the ones who were captured? What if we were the ones isolated from our own species? Wouldn't we wish for others to do what they can to free us? Please do not support zoos, circuses, oceanariums and other businesses that rely on exploiting animals. Live vegan for the happiness and freedom of all beings.
