Chalk it up as yet another sign of the time, a sad consequence of the age we live in.
I guess elephant parades when the circus is in town is now history too. Such a shame. It was so much fun and great, free entertainment for kids.
Last year, as those that follow this blog remember, they did everything possible to make sure that the public would not know when the elephants would be walked to/from the train.
This year they went further. They trucked the elephants from the back of the arena to the train.
We saw it and watched three of the elephants being loaded into the truck — a larger, 18 wheel version of a horse transport.
Very sad, but at least the elephants are safe.
What is happening to today’s society distresses me. We continue to regress.
No elephant parades anymore.
