Snoopy: I won't ever go to a circus. Elephants are amazingly beautiful intelligent animals, and are not meant to be performing silly tricks.
I have read that elephants can't possibly be trained the way we train dogs. What I was reading, said that the only way to "train" an elephant is to totally break their spirit and make them fear NOT doing what you want them to do. (I don't know how true that is, as it was a PETA article which could of course be exaggerated)
It is probably a little sick, but I actually get a little joyful when I hear of elephants finally having enough and attacking people. That is probably misguided, I suppose, because they probably get killed after doing that
Tuesday: How did you get through it?? I can not watch those shows! I would have been balling my eyes out like a baby, I'm sure. That stuff totally breaks my heart. Yeah, I'm sap. LOL. And it probably would have bothered me for a while afterwards. I tend to just avoid that channel, because it seems like anytime I come across it, a show like that is on.
anastasia: I can't watch Animal Planet. There's too many shows about animal abuse, or animals being rescued from precarious situations.. It breaks my heart! lol. I used to watch that channel all the time, but I ended up finding many of the shows bothered me too much. Even when things turn out good in the end, watching the parts that lead up to that are just too upsetting to me. I think I care more about animals than I do people !! LOL...
Jim Dandy: LOL that's funny. My cat is the same way. She is OBSESSED with the plastic seal things on milk things. (LOL, horrible description, but I don't know if they have a name!.. You know? those things you pull off of gallons of milk?) She KNOWS when I'm opening a new one and comes RUNNING and will meow at me until I toss it in the air for her to jump and catch.
