Question: Dear Kryon: I live in Spain. I am sorry if I will ask you a question you might have already answered, but the translations of your books are very slow and I might not have gathered all information you have already given. I am quite concerned about abandoned animals. It seems that many people buy animals for their children and as soon as they grow, they set them out somewhere. Recently I had the occasion to see a small kitten in the middle of the street. I did not immediately react, since I could have stopped and taken it, without getting out of the car. So, I went on and at the first occasion I could turn, I went back to see if I could take the kitten, but it was to late, somebody had already killed it. This happened some month ago, but I still feel very sorry for that kitten. I just would like to know, what kind of entity are these animals and how does this fit in our world. Are these entities which choose this kind of life, like we do choose our kind of Human life? I see so many abandoned animals and every time I see one, my heart aches... I would like to know more about them.

Answer: Dear one, indeed the answer has been given, but let us give it again so you all understand. Animals are here on earth for three (3) reasons.

(1) The balance of biological life. . . the circle of energy that is needed for you to exist in what you call "nature."

(2) To be harvested. Yes, it's true. Many exist for your sustenance, and this is appropriate. It is a harmony between Human and animal, and always has. Remember the buffalo that willingly came into the indigenous tribes to be sacrificed when called? These are stories that you should examine again. The inappropriateness of today's culture is how these precious creatures are treated. Did you know that if there was an honoring ceremony at their death, they would nourish you better? Did you know that there is ceremony that could benefit all of humanity in this way. Perhaps it's time you saw it.

(3) To be loved and to love. For many cultures, animals serve as surrogate children, loved and taken care of. It gives Humans a chance to show compassion when they need it, and to have unconditional love when they need it. This is extremely important to many, and provides balance and centering for many.

Do animals know all this? At a basic level, they do. Not in the way you "know," but in a cellular awareness they understand that they are here in service to planet earth. If you honor them in all three instances, then balance will be the result. Your feelings about their treatment is important. Temper your reactions with the spiritual logic of their appropriateness and their service to humanity. Honor them in all three cases.

Circus elephant kills early morning walker in southwest Germany

A circus elephant in Germany has run wild after escaping the circus and has killed a 65-year-old man on the streets of Buchen. The police are investigating whether someone let the elephant out of its tent.

Deutsche Welle, 13 June 2015


An elephant that escaped from a circus killed a 65-year-old man in southwestern German city of Buchen.

A nearby resident who observed the incident called the police.

The victim was on an early morning walk around 5:30 a.m. collecting bottles and cans, police said.

The man's wife went looking for him when he did not return from his walk at his usual time. She noticed several police cars near the circus tents and, when she got closer, she saw the body of her husband.

According to the German news agency, DPA, it remains unclear how the animal escaped its confines in the Luna Circus and what may have led to the man's death.

"The elephant cannot have let himself out. So the question is: Did someone let him out, or was the cage not properly locked?" a police spokesman told DPA.

Police said they were also investigating why the animal acted aggressively toward the man.
A circus employee was later able to calm the 34-year-old female elephant, called Baby, and return her to the tent.

Past record of aggression

According to media reports, Stefan Frank, the junior boss of the circus regularly took Baby for walks outside in the recent years. The animal was also said to have broken out many times.

It was not the first time that the elephant injured people. In September 2010, it catapulted a man into the air and badly injured him.

In October 2012, the elephant beat a 12-year-old boy with its trunk and broke his jaw.

The Circus Luna has come under criticism by the local veterinary office over alleged poor housing conditions. In March, the animal rights organization PETA accused the circus of housing an elephant in a truck which was not sufficiently heated.
