Outlaw Cruel Circus that Forces Polar Bears to Sing and Dance

polar-bear-by-rosevita

Target: Vladimir Medinsky, Russian Minister of Culture

Goal: Shut down the inhumane circus act that forces polar bears to sing and dance.

Polar bears are forced to perform painful tricks in a cruel circus act. The Ivanovo circus is a popular Russian circus known for its polar bear act. Startling images show the bear standing on its hind legs, muzzled, and dancing with its prod-wielding trainer. Demand the indefinite closing of this inhumane circus.

Polar bears are taught to sing, dance, ice skate, and play football at the hands of their trainer. She speaks openly in an interview about her methods of training the bears, which include consistent beatings. Once onstage, the bears are muzzled, chained, and forced to stand on their hind legs. This posture is unnatural and uncomfortable for the bears. They are also allegedly subjected to starvation and small enclosures.

This is not the first incident of alleged animal abuse in a Russian Circus. They have been accused of burning animals with cigarettes, striking them with metal bars, and using other torture methods in the past. Sign below and demand the immediate shut down of the Ivanovo circus.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Medinsky,

Polar bears are muzzled, chained, and forced to stand on their hind legs to perform in a cruel circus act. This torture cannot go on. We demand the immediate shut down of the Ivanovo circus.

The circus bears are forced to stand, sing, dance, and do other tricks that cause them extreme discomfort. They are also allegedly beaten, starved, muzzled, and forced to live in small enclosures all for the sake of entertainment.

We demand that you put an end to this abuse by closing the Ivanovo circus indefinitely.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This is no longer entertainment! This is now called animal abuse. Abusing animals for circus acts is no longer excepted in today’s modern ethical humane treatment for animals. This is now taboo. WE ARE NOW IN THE MODERN ERA AND ANIMAL ABUSE WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!!

  2. Amanda Ashworth says:

    They are abusing animals that have no say in how they live. Animal slavery is just as bad as human as far as I am concerned.

  3. what if the shoe were on the other foot and polar bears had this trainers baby and were using it in a circus??? She might not like her own training methods then…. May Karma find her and all other responsiblle for this heartless inhuman treatment of living creature. What kind of person could hurt an animal like that? That’s not a mentally well individual for sure!

  4. vena campbell says:

    There should no longer be circuses anyway. I believe they are very out of date in this day and age….

  5. HOW IN GODS NAME DO PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH SUCH SICKENING THINGS, AND PEOPLE PAY TO SEE IT, THEY ARE AS BAD.
