Though not strictly a meat fact, this is consistent with the mentality: Abuse animals routinely, continually, institutionally, and you'll be fine as long as the mainstream public doesn't see it. But more people are noticing the no-brainer that elephants do not want to perform circus tricks and only physical violence, combined with intense psychological trauma, can force them to do so. And more people will be exposed to this as the previously dismissed suit against Ringling Bros., for just those activities, was restored this week by a federal appeals court.
UPDATE 2/24: Portland Press Herald says "Performing circus pachyderms make for bad showmanship" and calls for the entire state of Maine to outlaw elephants in circuses.
