There is overwhelming evidence and documentation of the abuse animals endure in circuses, as well as the $270,000 settlement fine paid by Ringling Bros. for "alleged" violations of the Animal Welfare Act - the largest ever assessed to an animal exhibitor by the USDA. http://www.ad-international.org/adi_usa/go.php?id=2493 The abuse, exploitation, cruelty and neglect animals are subjected to in circuses and traveling shows are horrific and heartbreaking. http://www.mediapeta.com/peta/PDF/RinglingFactsheet.pdf If you respect animals and care about their welfare, please do not attend, employ or promote circuses that use animals. For the few minutes you see animals “performing” they suffer a lifetime of inhumane confinement, abuse and cruelty. Please visit Break The Chain http://breakthechainus.com/ to learn more about the campaign to bring an end to circus animal suffering in the USA, and how you can support The Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act, H.R. 3359, a bill introduced by Congressman Jim Moran, that is extremely vital to the lives of these animals and to ending this cruelty.

For our kids’ sake, it’s time to throw animal-act circuses into the trash heap of degrading forms of entertainment, such as gladiator contests, blackface minstrel shows, bear baiting, bullfights — the list is endless — as well as freak shows, which were once essential parts of circuses and also worked to increase our credulity and dull our humanity. http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/01/20/2599741/animal-act-circuses-not-good-for.html#storylink=cpy#storylink=cpy
