As the adage goes- better late than never, New York State has finally banned circuses from using the elephants. Now, there will be no more of giant creatures being used for entertainment purpose. With elephants being so highly intelligent and emotional, it is insane that humans break their spirit and use them for mere entertainment.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of the Democrats signed a bill into law that prohibits this.
This decision has come about four months after the New York City Council voted to ban circuses from using any wild animals in their acts. New York circuses were experiencing sheer pressure from animal rights groups and the public to stop using elephants in their acts.
This is a step in the right direction. Soon, we will be experiencing a complete ban on circuses for using wild animals for entertainment purposes.
P.S. – Luckily, elephants will no longer be subjected to such abuse!
