13 Unforgettable Elephant Works of Art

This week Ringling Bros announced that after 100+ years of shows, the elephant performers will be phased out of show performances completely by 2018. All of the elephants will be retired to the Center for Elephant Conservation in Florida over the next 3 years. Here is a list of our favorite elephant photographs and artworks as we celebrate this group of animals making it one step closer to the peaceful days they have earned.
