So...you say you're an animal lover. Gotta love you for that!
And....you love going to the circus...I mean, who doesn't love "The Greatest Show on Earth"?!
Unfortunately, you can't be both a lover of animals and go to the circus.
In 2009, PETA secretly taped extensive abuse of the elephants at Ringling Bros. circus. The heart wrenching video footage reveals these gentle and very intelligent creatures enduring beatings almost daily, after long cross-country hauls in cramped box cars.
OK, now that you're totally depressed....don't be.
You can do something about this. Sign the petition to end this abysmal treatment in the name of "entertainment" and urge a full investigation into the inhumane practices of what is, as it turns out, "the saddest show on Earth".
With your help, these elephants can be released from the circus and retired to sanctuaries with hundreds of acres of natural habitat.
You have been officially alerted.
