One-Minute Mission: Karen Needs YOUR Help!

Check out all the details below and then click "Get Points" to submit a form for points!

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.

Meet Karen:

karen no logo

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!

    Ringling is one greedy and cruel organization! Please, never attend any circus that holds animals captive! They are beaten into submission, and their lives are a living hell! We must work hard to get them released to sanctuaries!

    Thank you so very much!

    I really hope I never meet these people, for their sake. I do not understand how people at Peta and Humane Society can record this information, without punching these creeps out. One reason I can never go to find out if there is cruelty going on, I would never be able to behave so well. I admire your inner strength I know it is needed to save the animals. So I thank you for it and ask please find a home for Karen and all the abused animals, they deserve better. They are living beings, as we are.

    This is just heartbreaking. Elephants are such intelligent and social animals. To see them spending their lives in captivity being treated so cruelly is just heart breaking I hope that people will help end this poor baby’s life of torment by signing the petition.

    I posted on facebook to stop this! This is her life cant she have a moment of happiness… makes you want to just take all the people that hurt her and lock them in cage and abandon them just so they can think about it… say it was from Karen… although her being so sweet she would just come over and open it because she is an elephant… a sweet elephant! did you know that they cry real tears when they feel sorrow… come on America!

    Karen the elephant is deprived any of her natural life, she was taken from her family in Thailand when she was little girl and for 40 years she endures beatings and endless transporting to perform silly tricks for circus owner profit. EXPLOITING ANIMALS IS DISGUSTING

    Such abuse of these type of Majestic Animals by the evil humans, should be Punishable by the Law. The society has become so Greedy for Money & profit, Fame, & materialistic stuff. These type of Animal Entertainments must be BAN in the entire country. Why do anyone think that the USA is a civilized nation? Civilization is far away from the evil people such as these Ringling Brothers. They will go to any extent to abuse, torture, maime or inflict massive pains and sufferings to these innocent animals as long as they get the Money in the expense of helpless creatures. This Karen has contributed enough of her life to gain the profit for your so called Ringling circuses and it is time for her to let go and allow this sentient being to have a peaceful golden years in her life. Please be kind to your slaves at least once in their life times. Free her and send her to a designated sanctuary for her to feel happy at least once in her life time. You people need to understand that it is not the money alone works in this life. It is the good deeds and the honorable ways, you treat every other living beings matters, way higher than the dollar sign. PLEASE LET THIS KAREN BE GONE TO A SANCTUARY…PLEASE SHOW THE WORLD THAT YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR LIFE LONG WORKERS WELFARE AS WELL. IN THIS CASE IT IS THIS SWEET GENTLE ELEPHANT NAMED ‘KAREN’ PLEASE LET HER FREE… Thanks.
