Jada Pinkett Smith is a native of Baltimore and as Ringling Bros. circus nears its Baltimore stop Jada has penned a letter to the Mayor.

She wants to urge her to make sure there is a ban on any "mechanical, electrical, or manual device that is likely to cause physical injury or suffering" to an animal in order to force it to perform.

In her letter, she wrote:

"Unlike me and other actors, elephants do not choose to perform. They are often violently coerced by Ringling's trainers with bullhooks, which are jabbed into the sensitive areas of their bodies."

So let's hope the Mayor makes sure to keep Ringling honest or else the circus may face another huge fine.
