The problem of torturing elephants while keeping those in zoos and training them for performances in circuses has become the center of attention in public thanks to Olivia Munn’s Peta Ad.
The actress was photographed naked for a billboard featuring her sitting with elephants on the background. She looks great and maybe even convincing to someone.
The problem she tried to focus attention on is that little elephants are ‘torn from their mothers at birth and then bound and electro-shocked as babies in order to break their spirits’ and resistance. Animals spend all their lives performing stupid, meaningless tricks being constantly scared of physical punishment, including beatings with bullhooks-sharp, metal-tipped implements that resemble fireplace pokers.
Speaking about the urgency of the problem Olivia explains:
When you look at something like the circus and everyone’s laughing and there’s color and there’s music and everything seems so great, but when you go right behind that door and they’re in these crates all day long and then they’re getting shocked and beat just so they can get up and dance around on a ball .. it was just so sickening.”
The ad reads: “As Nature Intended, Let Elephants Be Free. Boycott the Circus.” The billboard with nude Olivia is located at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Highland Avenue in Los Angeles.
If you want my opinion, I will say that I do like animals a lot and I feel compassionate to them. Maybe the appeal to stop showing them off in circuses can work and they will live more or less free. However, there is something that I don’t really understand. Why did Olivia get undressed? There were no slogans like “I’d rather go naked” or something. She could talk to people being fully dressed-up! Or don’t we already see women with their clothes on???
