Unhappy Mexico Seizes Circus Animals After Elephant Escape

That's why some people think that circuses aren't the best ... warning if you follow the link that there's a sad photo of a dead elephant.

The article is short and basically says: Mexico authorities seized 12 animals (2 Asian elephants and 10 Siberian tigers) from a circus after one of its elephants wandered onto a highway and was struck and killed by a bus. Mexico's Environmental Protection Office said the animals were not properly contained and were at risk of escaping.

Go here for the full article.

Whenever I hear about circus elephants, it reminds me of the book "Water for Elephants". It's a great story. I really recommend it.

Smile re: book recommendation

Thanks! I'll look into that! A much more mature association to have: whenever I think of circus elephants ... I think of Dumbo
