Last Chain On Billie: How One Extraordinary Elephant Escaped the Big Top by Carol BradleyAgainst the backdrop of a glittering but brutal circus world, Carol Bradleys Last Chain on Billie charts the history of elephants in America, the inspiring story of the Elephant Sanctuary and the spellbinding tale of a resilient elephant who defied the system even as she struggled to conquer her past, who never lost sight of the life she was meant to have.
Left in the wild, Billie the elephant would have spent her days surrounded by family, free to wander the jungles of Asia. Instead, traders captured her as a baby and shipped her to America, where she learned to carry humans, stand on a tub and balance on one leg – the full repertoire of elephant tricks. For decades, Billie crisscrossed the country, dazzling audiences as she performed breathtaking stunts. But behind the scenes she lived a life of misery: traveling in trucks, chained for hours on end, barely able to move, giving eight-minute performances under harsh lights and to the sounds of blaring music. And worse.Finally, she got a lucky break. As part of the largest elephant rescue in American history, Billie wound up at a sanctuary for performing elephants in Tennessee, able once more to roam through open meadows and share her days with a herd. She would never be beaten again. But, overcome with anxiety, she withdrew from the rest of the elephants and refused to let anyone remove a chain still clamped around her leg. Her caregivers began to wonder if Billie could ever escape her emotional wounds. The compelling story of Billies battle to reclaim her old self is a testament to the intelligence, emotional complexity and remarkable strength of all elephants, captive or free.

David Ige approved the new regulation yesterday, almost four years after he pledged that the state would stop issuing permits to people seeking to import wild animals in order to put them on display or force them to perform. The rule prohibits the importation of lions, tigers, bears, elephants, alligators, and other wild animals used by circuses and people who exploit them for photo ops and rides. PETA and our supporters urged Hawaii officials to implement the regulation in order to protect animals from abuse and humans from dangerous encounters with frustrated captive animals. Those used in these events have been conditioned to fear and obey their trainers through the use of whips, bullhooks, and deprivation. Her tragic story is a reminder that it should never be surprising when a powerful wild animal behaves like one. In captivity, those who respond instinctively to fear or abuse always pay a price for it.

Elephant Attack - Ultimate Predator
As our understanding of the minds of our fellow species improves, will we increasingly look back at the way we have treated them in horror and repulsion? Sat 12 Aug Water streams off the edges of her giant ears, runs in rivulets down the wrinkles of her slate-grey skin. As she drinks, she rubs her skin against the steel fence, her eyelids drooping luxuriously, her trunk relaxing. There are no people laughing or pointing here at the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. There are no infants crying, no children arguing. In fact, few things are required of the 10 pachyderms here.
The reality of circus animals is starkly different from the glamorous image that they project. The animals featured in these shows have been forcefully taken from their families and natural habitats, and trained using vicious methods that include prodding, electric shocks, whipping, and the forcing of the animals to stand on burning coals. Because of the harsh housing and transportation conditions, the animals suffer from a host of physical and psychological injuries. He was taken in the dead of night. The panicked herd had scattered, and he was left alone, huddled under his mother's long trunk, begging her to get up. Her body was left lying on the ground, having been shot dead by hunters, her tusks stolen, her baby — only several weeks old — taken.
