Poem by a Friend …. “🐘 Elephants …. Magnificent, Majestic Noble Beasts 🐘 …. “!!


~~November 22, 2017~~ 



When the Earth was barren and bare,

And man looked out on folly,

we killed for sport and not to eat.

We chose to start our end

By killing magnificent friend

Such noble beasts we destroyed them all

At our hand we sealed our end

or nature’s balance we tilt the scales

And doom we face for nature failed.

No food or drink when balance upset

For us a tomb and man kind loss

At last no more an upright man.

For in our place was heard a roar

From small jungle and oasis desert

Beast return to claim it all,

And free to roam their earthly land

Unhampered by the human man.

IOTD …. Special Edition …. “World Elephant Day …. “!!


~~August 12, 2016~~ 


On August 12, 2012, the inaugural World Elephant Day was launched to bring attention to the urgent plight of Asian and African elephants. The elephant is loved, revered and respected by people and cultures around the world, yet we balance on the brink of seeing the last of this magnificent creature.

The escalation of poaching, habitat loss, human-elephant conflict and mistreatment in captivity are just some of the threats to both African and Asian elephants. Working towards better protection for wild elephants, improving enforcement policies to prevent the illegal poaching and trade of ivory, conserving elephant habitats, better treatment for captive elephants and, when appropriate, reintroducing captive elephants into natural, protected sanctuaries are the goals that numerous elephant conservation organizations are focusing on around the world.

World Elephant Day asks you to experience elephants in non-exploitive and sustainable environments where elephants can thrive under care and protection. On World Elephant Day, August 12, express your concern, share your knowledge and support solutions for the better care of captive and wild elephants alike.

At the end of the day .… “Kinessa Johnson …. Protects Endangered Species in Africa”!!

This Woman Protects Endangered Species by Hunting Poachers

The news has been full lately with stories about animals-wild and domestic alike, bringing attention to the consciousness of non-human species and their rights.

Right in sync with this trend a group of retired US veterans who are bringing their courage and expertise to Africa to help defend wild animals in a most unusual way. This special team of US veterans are trained and armed to hunt poachers.

Poaching presents serious problems for already vulnerable wild animal species across the globe and this is especially true in Africa,where many of world’s most rare and amazing species reside and originate.  According to the African Wildlife Foundation, rhinos, elephants, and other types of African wildlife may go extinct in our lifetime.  An example is the Black Rhino who’s natural population has decreased by a very disturbing 97.6% just since 1960.  Some pretty drastic paradigm changes and conscious action must be taken to change the course of our current route on the planet.

One such effort is a non-profit project is called VETPAW (Veterans Empowered To Protect African Wildlife). VETPAW activists enlist retired veterans to invest theiryears of training and experience by locating themselves in Africa to protectwildlife from poachers who seek to hunt and capture these creatures for avariety of reasons.

Grabbing headlines right away for VETPAW with a powerfully intense vibe and stature is Kinessa Johnson, a US Army veteran whose 4 years of service in Afghanistan equipped her well to serve wildlife through the nonprofit.

Kinessa is part of a team who arrived in March and she says “We’re going over there to do some anti-poaching, kill some bad guys, and do some good.”


On March 26th Johnson and the team arrived in Tanzania, launching immediately into action. The team reports that they have already seen a decrease in poaching because of the presence and reputation of the team.  The team’s primary focus is to providetraining to the park rangers and to join them in patrolling the premises.

It is reported that park staff are in great need of help.

Johnson explains, “they lost about 187 guys last year over trying to save rhinos and elephants.” Johnson and the team will be training the rangers in marksmanship, field, medicine, and counter-intelligence, among other useful skills.


Johnson, like others on the team, joined with the VETPAW team as an expression of her love for animals and because of the obvious need for help in Africa in particular as it is the continent experiencing the highest rates of poaching across the world, leaving endangered and other species vulnerable to illegal human predation.

The political side of poaching in Africa is equally as dark and tangles as much of the capital gained from the black market trade of illegal endangered animal parts winds up funding war and terrorist activity in Africa. Helping to manage the poaching activity is hoped to bring decrease to conflict across the board.

Johnson says, “After the first obvious priority of enforcing existing poaching laws, educating the locals on protecting their country’s natural resources is most important overall.”

Using social media as a platform, Kinessa Johnson also supports the cause by raising awareness and funds does so through her large and well deserved Facebook and Instagram following which amounts to more than 44,000 people. On her profiles she shares beautiful and amazing photos of African wildlife as well as updates on the activity of her team.

Afghanistan veteran Kinessa Johnson leaves US to hunt endangered species killers

~Published on Apr 6, 2015~

A US Army officer has left the armed forces and is using her military skills to help train park rangers as an advisor and fight against wildlife poachers in East Africa, according to a Daily Mail report.

Kinessa Johnson, a Washington native who served four years in the army as a weapons instructor and mechanic in Afghanistan, decided to join Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife, or VETPAW, a nonprofit an anti-poaching organization last November.

The nonprofit organization’s website says its mission is to help end the poaching of endangered African wildlife by taking advantage of the skills of US veterans and getting them to help train park rangers.

IOTD …. Image of the day, #325 …. “Elephants Walking The Trails”!!


~~September 4, 2014~~ 


Elephants walking along the trails
Are holding hands by holding tails

Trunks and tails are handy things
When elephants walk in circus rings

Elephants work and elephants play
And elephants walk and feel so gay.

And when they walk, it never fails,
They’re holding hands by holding tails.

~~July 16, 2015~~ 


A baby elephant needs to learn what to do with its trunk, much like a human child needs to learn to walk and talk. When they are born they tend to just swing their trunks around and will often be seen stepping on them, making it quite an awkward process for the elephant. Just as a newborn human baby does with its thumb, a calf may be witnessed sucking on it’s trunk. Around the ages of six to eight months a calf will start eating and drinking with its trunk and usually has a pretty good grasp on it by the time it is a year old.

Learning about Baby Elephants

Excellent article

Teaching your students about how big baby elephants are when they are born, what they eat, and who cares for them, will give them a better understanding of this animal.

Ringling Bros. Circus eliminating elephant acts amid public concerns

POLK CITY, Fla. – The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will phase out the show’s iconic elephants from its performances by 2018, telling The Associated Press exclusively that growing public concern about how the animals are treated led to the decision.

“As it appear in … full read/credit”



Municipalities have passed ordinances banning the use of exotic show animals or tools such as bullhook

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus didn’t really get a conscience.

Instead, they started to get worried about getting poor.

This morning the largest circus company in the U.S. told AP reporter Tamara Lush that it would phase out all elephants of its shows by 2018.

But it wasn’t necessarily because of public outcry over the use of bullhooks, an handling tool that animal-rights groups say is a form of torture; or the generally questionable decision to force exotic animals to perform.

Add another voice …. Kate del Castillo …. stop circus animals’ abuse!!

~~May 20, 2014~~ 

Tools of the Trade: Circuses

If there’s one thing we know about circuses that use animals, it’s that, well, THEY SUCK.

Elephants, tigers, and other animals used in circuses are stolen from their families, tightly chained or caged for hours or even days at a time, and beaten, electro-shocked, and whipped into submission by circus trainers.

Circuses want you to believe that these animals voluntarily stand on their heads, balance on balls, and jump through rings of fire — but c’mon, y’all.

We know better than that.

Check out a few of the most common, often bloodied tools used by the circus industry to hurt animals, and see for yourself that a life in the circus is anything but fun for animals.


peta2 bullhook

A bullhook, which resembles a fireplace poker, has a sharp steel hook and a point at one end and is used to beat, hit, prod, and jab elephants into submission, sometimes until they’re bloody.

Trainers often embed the hook in the soft tissue behind the ears, inside the ear or mouth, in and around the anus, and in tender spots under the chin and around the feet.

A former Ringling Bros. employee said that beating elephants with bullhooks was a normal routine and that “Ringling even employs a guy to use some special powder to stop up the bleeding when an elephant is hooked too hard. They call it ‘spot work’”—as in “try and ‘spot’ the abuse,” we’re guessing.

~~And that’s not all~~

elephants electro-shocked in circuses


elephants chained in the circus

 In the wild, elephants walk up to 30 miles each day, but in the circus, these intelligent, social animals are locked in leg shackles that only allow them to take a single step forward or backward.

Ringling’s own documents reveal that on average, elephants are chained for 26 hours straight and are sometimes chained for as many as 100 hours straight.


Constant travel means that animals are confined to boxcars or trailers, often for days at a time, in extremely hot and cold weather, often without access to basic necessities such as food, water, and veterinary care.

While in transitelephants, big cats, and primates are forced to eat, drink, sleep, defecate, and urinate all in the same place.

How can you help?~~

If you know of a circus headed to your town, e-mail us at peta2@peta2.com, and we’ll hook you up with FREE leaflets, stickers, and petitions that you can use to get the word out in your town about how circuses HURT animals!

Is your class planning a field trip to the circus? OH, HELL NO!

Tell your teacher about how cruel animal-based circuses are and ask to see an animal-free circus such as Cirque du Soleil, the new Pickle Family Circus, and Cirque Éloize instead.

Most importantly, pledge never to go to a circus that uses animals!

~~Kate del Castillo Aims to Keep Ringling Cruelty Out of Her Country~~

~Say NO to the Circus …. Kate del Castillo~

~~Published on Jan 7, 2014~~

Kate del Castillo takes us behind the scenes in her new PETA exposé, revealing what the circus industry tries desperately to hide.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will drag its abused animals anywhere the circus can make a buck by forcing them to perform. But Kate del Castillo is doing everything she can to show the circus that cruelty isn’t welcome in her backyard.

The Mexico native is aiming to shut Ringling out of venues in Mexico City and Monterrey. She’s written an urgent letter to Guillermo Salinas Pliego, owner of Arena Ciudad de México and Arena Monterrey, detailing the circus’s routine abuse of animals and imploring him to stop hosting the circus. With Ringling scheduled to be there in just a few days, Kate wants to make this year Ringling’s last.

In her letter to Salinas Pliego, Kate urged, “Most performers would love to sell out an arena, but elephants in the circus would surely trade in a packed audience for a life of freedom with their families. I hope to hear that you’ll do the right thing and decide never to host Ringling Bros. again.”

Kate knows all about Ringling’s cruelty — from letting animals suffer rather than getting them needed veterinary care to routinely beating animals in order to force them to perform unnatural and even painful tricks.
