Pinkett Smith should see circus for herself

March 13, 2012

I read The Sun's recent article regarding circus elephants being mistreated, and I feel Jada Pinkett Smith has been misinformed regarding how the circus and other traveling circuses around the country care for their animals ("Jada Pinkett Smith urges SRB to protect elephants," March 6).

I hope Ms. Smith will visit the circus when it's in Baltimore March 21 through April 1 and see how well Ringling Bros. Circus cares for not only elephants but all of their animals. Also, see how bull hooks are only used to guide elephants and do them no harm.
