Coney Vid: Topsy's story: "Persist" by All India Radio

Topsy's story: "Persist" by All India Radio

Born Free USA and All India Radio have teamed up to spread the word about our work on behalf of circus elephants in the U.S. All India Radio has allowed Born Free USA to use animator Lucy Dyson's critically-acclaimed video to their song "Persist", which tells the sad story of Topsy, an abused circus elephant, tragically put to death by Thomas Edison in a public electrocution at Coney Island in 1903. Things haven't changed much for elephants in the circus since then. Visit to find out more about the video and Born Free USA's Elephant Defense Fund. Special thanks to All India Radio and Minty Fresh Records.
