Ringling Brothers Circus abuses animals

Thinking about taking the family to Ringling Brothers circus? If you have even an ounce of compassion for animals in your heart, you really need to reconsider. Did you know that the so-called "trainers" at Ringling beat, shock, tie up, and slam to the ground baby elephants? Well, they do. That's how they get these magnificent, intelligent WILD animals to comply and do the stupid parlor tricks Ringling forces on them. Do you REALLY want to see magnificent elephants--that should be roaming hundreds of miles a day in the wild and forming familial relationships with other elephants--standing on their heads? Especially knowing that they've been brutally "trained?"

If you're even considering attending a Ringling circus [or any other circus that uses animals], please visit this page for lots of information on the facts about how Ringling's animals are trained. There are also photographs taken by an undercover PETA worker showing the brutality and cruelty inflicted on innocent animals by Ringling's "trainers."

Most importantly, after you're aware of the facts I hope you'll sign the letter to the USDA asking for immediate revocation of Ringling's license and to pursue criminal prosecution of Ringling's handlers. If you don't speak up for these abused animals, who will?

If you're in or near a city where Ringling [or any circus that uses animals] performs, please consider showing up with anti-circus signs, shirts, buttons, whatever and help inform those who don't know the facts. Implore them to boycott cruelty, boycott the circus.
