Memes, Peta, and Mike Will: @Regrann from @r_pilram - R.I.P. MIKE: ANOTHER BABY ELEPHANT DIES ON RINGLING’S WATCH JANUARY 28, 2016 A 2-year-old Asian elephant named Mike—the youngest elephant who was being held at Ringling Bros.’ Florida training facility—reportedly died on Monday from elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus. This highly fatal disease is killing more and more captive elephants and has been linked to the stress of captivity. Mike is the fifth young elephant who has died on Ringling’s watch. One 8-month-old elephant’s hind legs were shattered during circus training, and a 3-year-old elephant drowned in a pond while trying to get away from a trainer wielding a bullhook—a weapon that resembles a fireplace poker with a sharp steel hook on one end. Ringling plans to take elephants off the road in May and move them to its Florida compound, where they will spend most of the day in chains, live under the threat of bullhooks, and be bred and used as test subjects. As long as Ringling keeps breeding these animals, elephants like Mike will continue to suffer and die. Please urge Ringling to end its breeding program and send all the elephants to an accredited sanctuary now. http:-www.peta2.com-http:-www.ringlingbeatsanimals.com-elephant-calfs-death-demonstrates-need-to-end-captive-breeding- -. 🐘🎪🎪🚫🚫 ................... • Elephants can live to be over 70 years old • Only one mammal can’t jump — the elephant • Elephants are the largest land animals in the world • The largest elephant on record was an adult male African elephant.
