Elephants in Circuses: Training & Tragedy

This undercover footage shows Tim Frisco, Carson & Barnes Circus' "animal care" director, instructing a would-be elephant trainer how to use the sharp steel-tipped bullhook: "Tear that foot off! Sink it in the foot! Tear it off! Make 'em scream!" Other footage includes recent shots of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus handlers aggressively and openly striking elephants with bullhooks, even causing a bloody wound behind an elephant’s ear.
