OMG…Have you ever seen so many horses & an elephant surrounded by so many mobs, shouting & screaming? The level of stress must have been so high in the horses & elephant, its a wonder there wasn’t an accident…then who would be to blame?? The animals of course. It’s outrageous to use animals in this type of demonstration!!
