After watching undercover video footage shot in Ringling's Red Unit, I am writing to ask that the USDA immediately seize the unit's elephants. The video clearly shows Ringling employees hitting and whipping elephants, sometimes using sharp bullhooks. And one elephant, Tonka, shows persistent signs of mental distress yet is still forced to perform night after night. Please make sure that Tonka and other elephants in Ringling's custody are not struck or whipped again. Seize them now, and work with PETA to place them in a reputable sanctuary. I also ask that the USDA immediately investigate the conduct of Ringling and its employees and vigorously enforce the Animal Welfare Act. Thank you.
