More than a dozen children were injured Saturday morning at the Indiana State Fairgrounds when a circus elephant they were waiting to ride got startled and caused some scaffolding to give way.
I have absolutely no sympathy for any of the children injured but I do feel for the elephant. I am sure that it was beaten once back stage and possibly worse. Anyone who would take their children to the circus and let their children ride a wild animal needs to have their heads examined. Enough is enough, stop this insanity and ban the circus already.
