"Typically, when elephants are in captivity, they're under a lot of stress," Blais said. "Their entire life is abnormal; it's unnatural, and that can often lead to aggression.

We have three elephants here in goshen CT. A friend of mine worked in the circus with them and took care of them. I don't like the idea of elephants being in the circus. A lot of these animals are treated badly and they deserve a home where they can roam their territory without being placed for our intertainment. Anyways this was a touching sweet video!!
