Not everyone knows the punishment, and the torment circus animals go through. They are regularly whipped until they get the routine correct. They are often forced to perform moves that are harsh on their bodies, such as making an elephant stand on two feet. An elephant went on a rampage at the circus parade in Denmark. Tourists and staff were terrified and ran for their lives, and the elephant lifted the car in the air without breaking a sweat. The Denmark circus has denied all accounts of animal abuse and say that they treat their animals in the best conditions possible, video footage shows otherwise.
