A remark made by an eyewitness to the cruelty of the man Frisco in this film:

"Trust me you guys, Frisco is nothing special as far as how mean a trainer can be. They are ALL just like him, it's hard to believe but I've seen worse." -Tosti

After years of beatings to teach her 'who's boss', torture and pain from freq 'training', chained 20-22 hrs a day when not performing, this poor abused African Elephant (an endangered species) went crazy during a circus show, notice Tyke only attacked her trainers! then ran, she died a long slow death though, of multiple bullets from the police:

Samba is a 14 year-old female elephant. At the age of six months she almost certainly saw her parents be killed by poachers.  Each evening the Continental Circus acts out Samba's death sentence. Already traumatized by her parents' slaughter, her tamer strikes her to make her fall down showing the whites of her eyes in a sick parody of her own death.  Read all about poor Samba at the below link and also what happened when she didn't perform.  To see the video click - ''Watch the video of the sordid act that Samba is forced to perform'

'SOMEONE PLEASE!              

          CAN YOU HEAR ME?'

                                                                         by Victoria Heuman - victoriaellenb@comcast.net


Violently ripped away from my mothers true love.
I scream and cry for her -but deep I sense her heart is breaking.
Oh My God! what has happened?
Her comfort never comes ….I do not understand?

I’m placed inside shackles starved and beaten.
Its been a nightmare endlessly for days.
This can’t be…Please! Why are you so cruel ? What have I done?

Voices of men rise all around me
while sharp hooks penetrate my tender skin.
what can I do for you? I would! But please! Help me to understand?

My mind manages to stay focused I will try and leave if only I could.
I know you do not like me ????
Sick and alone my heart weighs so heavy.

Some times you leave me locked up and alone which seems unbearable without a
care. Only to return seemingly unhappy with what I am …but why? I cannot
understand?

The memories of what was once is now a dream it seems.
Oh no! could it be this terrible pain is the life doomed for me? Who am I?

At times I seem to do what you want
but even then you strike again?
I continue to make that painful move in hopes you will except me.
I know most times by the tone of your voice I must disappoint you…
Believe me…I just do not understand?

A shower at the end of a long rubber hose…. oh how I love and rejoice the cool of the
water! but even then with this one only joy your hands and glares always move
in anger…. please tell me what have I done?

These crowds of people scream as I move Are they angry with me too?
Why? Frightened …I plead… are you so angry with me?
….What did I possibly do?

Relief or comfort is never near …It never seams to come.
I try to please…. Confused and bewildered.
I’m patient to learn but please show some care.
… I’m trying to know what you need?

I have learned my only love is no longer near… her memory so far away.
Please! I ask for somebody to care… I know someone once did!
I guess I’m no good really not worthy …you have told me in so many ways

Please……I just don’t understand ….what I have or haven’t done?

 

 I hear you...Victoria Heuman - victoriaellenb@comcast.net
