Elephants deserve humane treatment

I was thoroughly disgusted with The News’ choice of the picture of the elephant balancing on a ball for the March 14 picture page. Try reading “Behemoth: The History of the Elephant in America” by Ronald Tobias. I couldn’t get through the first half. What we do to elephants is revolting. They are intelligent, compassionate animals with feelings, and we treat them worse than we treat our family pets. Shame on circuses and the people who support them, for abusing elephants, or any wild animal.
