Ellie the Elephant Comes to ACS

Most kids love animals, but not all kids are aware of the horrors that elephants and other animals in circuses face, so PETA’s new walking, talking 6.5-foot-tall robot elephant named Ellie decided to come to Assumption School and tell students what goes on behind the big walls of many circuses and zoo. Elle has taught kids that elephants belong in the wild, with their families, and that they suffer in captivity, where they’re subjected to abuse and unable to engage in natural behavior. Ellie’s visit was a huge hit with children and they all appreciated the educational message.
