Jackass Star Steve-O Breaks His Silence and Speaks of Witnessing Elephant Abuse by the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus: Undeniable Proof

Now Ringling Brothers can’t say a thing.

This is actual proof from one who witnessed it behind the scenes. We have video evidence from undercover, but Steve-O holds credibility in that he has no animal rights ties and yet he found what he viewed with his own eyes so disturbing that he had to say something.

This is ground breaking and I hope it leads to the mainstream finally believing the truth. And the truth is that elephants are abused by Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus beyond any imaginable level. Quite simply, elephants will not so such unnatural tricks and be kept in captivity unless they are abused and tortured.

As Steve-O states, "You read about a lot of elephants going berserk in the circus, and it's obvious why they go berserk," he said. "It's because they're fricking tortured every day. I saw it myself."

“He particularly remembers how he squirmed as he watched trainers routinely strike performing elephants with steel-tipped bullhooks.”

To this he adds, "The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus has been abusing animals since the 1800s, and I'm sick of it," he said.

TV stuntman Steve-O has launched a one-man campaign against circus giants the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey after deciding to reveal all about the animal abuse he witnessed while training to be a clown.

During a recent internet interview with animal activists at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the Jackass wildman, real name Stephen Glover, called the circus bosses "a bunch of d**ks".

"The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus has been abusing animals since the 1800s, and I'm sick of it," he said.


Steve-O graduated from Ringling's Clown College several years ago, but the horrors he saw when he started his career under the big top have tormented him ever since.

He particularly remembers how he squirmed as he watched trainers routinely strike performing elephants with steel-tipped bullhooks.

"You read about a lot of elephants going berserk in the circus, and it's obvious why they go berserk," he said. "It's because they're fricking tortured every day. I saw it myself."
