Sissy in the Media

Sissy's story has prompted many people to rethink elephant management.

There is a bill in Congress right now which, if passed, would prohibit circuses from transporting elephants and using them for rides. The Elephant Sanctuary supports this legislation and we would urge our viewers and those who care about the welfare of elephants to communicate their feelings to the legislators who represent you.

When Sissy came to the Sanctuary last week, reporters from as far away as Germany and Canada came to watch a very special elephant rescued from a documented abusive situation. From time to time we will post articles about Sissy and other elephants we rescue.
