Elephants, both the Asiatic and the African for centuries, have been adored, have inspired great works of art, and even have beeApologyElephants poster1n revered as gods, yet they have also been treated with cruelty. AN APOLOGY TO ELEPHANTS explores the abuse of these ancient and intelligent animals and shows how some people are reversing the trend.
