At last night’s Public Works and Transportation meeting circus promoter Bob Sands was quoted as saying,
“I don’t know how you mistreat an elephant other than starve them to death, and they’re certainly not going to do that.”

Sands also said that George Carden told him he treats his elephants better than he treats family members. Here you can see Carden’s record. See photos and read entire article here:
