Imagine being kidnapped, transported from place to place for decades, and forced to entertain others while you suffer in pain. THIS is Karen’s life.
Karen was captured from the wild in Thailand as a baby 45 years ago. She was shipped around the world and sold to Ringling Bros. Since then, she has known nothing but misery. Karen has reportedly been beaten with a bullhook, and her tail has even been fractured. She also has scar tissue on her jaw from when a Ringling handler embedded a bullhook so deep that he had trouble removing it.
Don’t let Karen suffer any longer!
