AGAINST ANIMAL CIRCUS

New drawing
ANIMAL CRUELTY ANIMAL CIRCUS




Have you heard about how circus elephant are trained?
When a baby elephant is trained, they are tethered to strong steel stake in the ground.
The elephant struggles to get away but the pole is much stronger than the elephant is.
The elephant soon learns that its movement is limited by the length of it rope.
As the elephant grows, the stake can be replaced by just a simple wooden stake.
The elephant has learned its limitation, even through if tried as an adult it could easily pull up the stake and run free.
I wrote the kind of story behind.

サーカスのゾウは小さいときサバンナから連れてこられて、鉄の輪で繋がれるらしい、そして、大きくなるにつれて、木の輪、最終的には簡単なロープになるらしいが、小さいときに鉄の輪で繋がれた経験から絶対に逃げられないと刷り込まれるため、大きくなって絶対に引きちぎれるロープに繋がれても逃げようとしない。
このサーカスのゾウの背景に書いた物語はそんな逃げる事を忘れたゾウたちの所に新しく連れてこられた赤ちゃんゾウが、逃げられる可能性を教え、脱走する物語。
