Ele­phant falls into crowd

Wanganui Chronicle - - Front Page -

An an­i­mal right’s group has called for a ban on wild an­i­mals at cir­cuses in Ger­many, af­ter an In­dian ele­phant veered off its scripted per­for­mance and head­but­ted an­other ele­phant into a shocked au­di­ence. Peta spokes­woman Yvonne Wuerz said wild an­i­mals can­not be prop­erly cared for or man­aged in a cir­cus en­vi­ron­ment and should be banned. Cir­cus spokesman Frank Keller dis­missed the con­cerns, say­ing “it was an ac­ci­dent.”
