Harjit Kaur Instructor Pete Howard English 201 3 February 2009 Ring of Cruelty Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages gather all around and see the amazing feats that are presented before your eyes. Grab the bag of peanuts, cotton candy and find your seat, cause by the end you are going to need it. Animals usually do not stand on their heads, or ride bikes; circus workers force the animals into submission by using inhumane methods. The animals are forced to live in terrible conditions where there do not have complete access to food or even water. Behind the exterior of the circus there is world filled with cruelty, where the animals are exploited and abused by their trainers The Ringling Brother circus is selective with the information it releases to the public. Between August 2001 and February 2009. During this time there were seventeen elephants died. Out of those seventeen only the five of the deaths were actually announced to the public. The circus believes that these deaths are not important enough to mention to the public. The circus knows that if the news of the deaths spread it would result in a drop in revenue. The public is being deceived into believing that the show that there are seeing is harmless when in reality they are actually supporting a display of animal torture.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
