It´s summer time, the kids are out of school, the weather is mostly nice, and parents are looking for some easy and fun entertainment for their family. Fairs are abundant all around the country, there are rides for all ages and shrieks and laughter fill the air.

There are also rides that mean torture and abuse: on the back of ponies, horses, and more exotic, elephants. Some of these animals have been going round in circles for many decades, no matter what kinds of aches and pains they feel. There is Nosey, who has not had a chance to get out of this life long abuse; there is Hope, walking with pain day in an day out. And there are many more. They are kept because people will pay to have their children enjoy a moment of “fun”. Mostly not knowing how many hours of sadness fuel a moment of pleasure for their child.

Some elephants die of exhaustion, some will simply collapse, some will try to run away. All have endured a life of imprisonment.

Please do not ride any animal for fun. Please tell the parents of your children´s friends not to keep this vicious circle of abuse going. If there is no money to be made, there will be no more pain.
