“Nellie, the elephant, packed her trunk and said goodbye to the circus”
Written by Ralph Butler and Peter Hart (1956)
Unlike the childhood song character, Nellie, captive elephants do not have the luxury of packing up and moving on with their lives. They are bound to the shackles of their often grim existences. These extraordinary animals have patiently endured all kinds of violations from the human race and now depend on our goodwill to save them.
The good news for elephants is that they have true and loyal friends in the NSPCA and our supporters who are committed to fighting fiercely for their welfare and speaking out in their defence.
