Ban Wild Animals From the Circus

PETITION: Ban Wild Animals From the Circus

TARGET: U.S. Congress

Wild animals do not belong in the circus. They do not jump through fiery rings, stand on their heads, or ride bicycles. They do these tricks because they are abused and forced to perform. Many circus animals suffer from lacerations all over their body from ‘trainers’ using various torture tools such as whips, sticks, electric prods, and bullhooks.

The animals also spend most of their time in chains or cages. Cages barely big enough for one lion will have several big cats inside. They are forced to eat, drink, sleep, and defecate in these cramped cages for long travel hours. A study on traveling circuses even observed an elephant who was chained up 96% of it’s life.

The circus is no place for animals, not only due to animal safety but to the safety of spectators as well. Frustrated, these mentally and physically abused animals have been know to rebel against their trainer and terrorize the audience just to escape. These animals who try to escape are either beaten severely or gunned down and killed.

I can only repeat this over and over - they do not belong in a circus or in a cage - they should be left in the wild where they can live as intended.

All animals need to be treated with care, and respect always, and forever. It is our duty as humans to do so.
