Behavior of picketed circus elephants



Behavior of picketed circus elephants



Applied Animal Behaviour Science 62(1): 73-88



The behaviour of 14 female Asian (Elephas maximus) and 3 female African (Loxodonta africana) elephants who performed 2 shows each day with a circus that travelled to a new location (40 to 250 km from the previous day's lot) daily, was studied. When not performing or working, the elephants were picketed (chained) in 2 separate groups of 8 and 9 elephants each.
