Tell Ringling Bros. Circus to Retire All Animals

Tigers Patti Frazer

Target: Kenneth Feld, CEO of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus

Goal: Remove all animals from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and place them to sanctuaries.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus are well known for their various animal acts. In 2014, the circus announced that they would be ending all elephant acts and people rejoiced. However, the other animals Ringling Bros. holds seem to have been forgotten.

Ringling Bros. continues to exploit tigers, horses, camels and other animals for profit. These animals are forced to perform ridiculous and unnatural acts in front of large jeering crowds. On top of that, the animals are subjected to stressful training and cramped travel.

Sign this petition and demand Ringling Bros. Circus retire all their animals and move them to an accredited sanctuary.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Feld,

In 2014, you announced that you would be retiring all of you elephants and it was very excited news. As you know, elephants are extremely social and intelligent animals. They deserve a peaceful life and not one on the road. This is the same for the other animals Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey uses for performances.

Tigers, horses and camels are all intelligent animals who should not be subjected to the stressful training and cramped travel Ringling Bros. enforces. Also, the acts these animals are forced to do in front of large, jeering crowds are ridiculous, unnatural and harmful to the animals.

Please consider retiring all your animals to an accredited sanctuary. You have realized that elephants deserve a better life; what makes the other animals any different?

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Nature treats back now
    Take responsibility for your cruelty

  2. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME ???
    HOW CAN YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT KNOWING THESE MONSTERS ARE DOING THIS SHIT TO INNOCENT ANIMALS AND ENJOYING IT ?
    YOU NEED A WAKE UP CALL . I WILL NOT BE KIND IN THIS LETTER PLEADING YOU BECAUSE NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO BEG YOU TO NOT PERMIT THESE HORRIFIC ACTS FROM HAPPENING. THESE BASTARDS INFLICTING THIS SHIT ARE NOT HUMANS…YOU HAVE TO HAVE HUMANITY TO BE THAT.
    YOU MAKE THIS MONSTEROUS SHIT STOP NOW ! I WISH THE LONGEST AND MOST PAINFUL DEATH TO ALL WHO HAVE INFLICTED THE TORTURE AND MURDER ON THESE ANIMALS AND ALL THOSE WHO HAVE TURNED A BLIND EYE AND PERMITTED THIS.
    GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER BECAUSE KARMA IS A BITCH. THESE ARE ANIMALS WITH REAL FEELINGS OF PAIN, AND INTELLIGENCE.
    WHAT YOU DONT STOP IS JUST CRIMINAL. GOD HELP YOUR DECISION . YOUR AFTERLIFE IS ALL UP TO YOUR CHOICES…BUT RIGHT NOW YOUR JUST SHIT FOR LETTING THIS HAPPEN AND FORCING PEOPLE TO PLEA TO SAVE THESE ANIMALS WHICH SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN VICTIMS IN THE FIRST PLACE !

    You can either turn sorrowfully or
    carelessly away from an animal in
    distress or summon the courage to run
    forward and help.
    We can judge the heart of a person by their treatment of
    animals.

    people are sick fucks that care about money and ruining the lives of creatures that can’t talk english!!!!!!!

  4. KENNETH FELD, CEO of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus:

    WHAT IS IT YOU PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND IN THIS SENTENCE:
    “WE DEMAND THAT YOU” big important people in the ZOO/CIRCUS/SLAUGHTERING BUSINESS” STOP TORTURING ANIMALS AND MOVE THEM TO A SAFE SANCTUARY.” To many words????????????????

    Shame on you for fattening your bank accounts by KEEPING ANIMALS IN CAPTIVITY, TORTURING THEM AND SLAUGHTERING THEM WHEN THEY GET TIRED OR SICK. You are all a bunch of GREEDY people. WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND. Good luck, you’ll need it when justice is done. RETIRE ALL ANIMALS.

  5. All of these animals belong in reputable accredited sanctuaries–not horrifically abused and killed by greedy psychopaths!

  6. Animal slavery must be banned nowadays and killing them in wildlife for entertainment too

  7. Stephanie Geyser says:

    Why don’t you get yourselves into the 21st Century, instead of living in the Roman Empire of 2000 years ago, when it was considered acceptable to exhibit wild animals in arenas (like they were some form of oddity or freaks) to be gawked at by sub-humans?

  8. Beverley Foster says:

    Why do I find this picture so shocking?? – its because these magnificent animals are not meant to be exhibited performing senseless, degrading tricks for the entertainment of other animals. Also because I can imagine the torture, beatings and horrific treatment they must have gone through to make them perform such acts. Please stop it immediately and allow these animals to live out their lives as they should, in as natural an environment as possible.

  9. Ok, Ringling Bros. Circus, no more tricks. Please honor your words to retire all elephants to good responsible and humane sanctuaries,& NOT YOUR OWN HELLHOLE sanctuary soon. Also, because of your incredibly bad records for mistreating your animals, you are officially now under the world’s close scrutiny and animal lovers from all over are demanding that you retire the rest of them to good and responsible sanctuaries as well where they can be properly cared for and be truly happy for once in their lifetime. Put them out of their misery under your care or face dire consequences of being shut down for misusing and mistreating wildlife again for your own profits and gains. Adopt other forms of trick to entertain your customers and stay away from animals.
