Demand Circus Retire All Animals

Tigers DirkJan Ranzijn

Target: Scott O’Donnell, Executive Director of Circus World

Goal: Retire all of Circus World’s animals to accredited sanctuaries.

A popular circus in Wisconsin, Circus World, continues to exploit elephants and tigers for profit. Circus World continues to use these animals in numerous acts and offer elephant rides to the public.

Circus animals suffer mentally and physically. Many circus animals endure what seems like never ending pain and torture which is disguised as “training.” In addition, these animals are often neglected and kept in their cages for much too long. These animals belong in the wild, surrounded by trees, sunshine, and friends.

Sign this petition to demand Circus World retire all of their animals to an accredited sanctuary where they can happily live out the rest of their days.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. O’Donnell,

More and more circuses have decided to get rid of their animals acts and retire their animals to accredited sanctuaries. Unfortunately, your circus has not done the same. Instead, you continue to use elephants and tigers for circus acts and rides.

Animals held in captivity suffer mentally and physically. They are denied everything natural to them like running through the trees, soaking up the sunshine, and playing with their friends.

Please consider retiring all of your animals to accredited sanctuaries where they can happily live out the rest of their days. These animals deserve to run free. They should not be cooped up to put on shows for large, jeering crowds. It is unfair, unnatural, and greedy.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    People should not support circuses that involve any animals. No animals will be harm if there are no demand. Blame it on those ignorant and selfish human

    These poor animals do not belong in places of entertainment. They belong in the wild. But since the case with circus animals, send them to good sanctuaries to live out their lives in peace and safety. DO NOT support circuses or any other place that exploits animals.

  5. The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”
    – Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher.

    No creature should ever be used and abused in a circus environment. Circuses are for people performers NOT animals! All creatures have rights and it is those rights that MUST be respected and acted upon. Man does not have ownership of any living creature and never has had. ALL creatures from ALL circuses MUST BE RELEASED to professionally run sanctuaries to roam as free as they possibly can be, free from being caged, tormented and abused by circus owners. In this day and age this wrongdoing must be put right NOW! Such imprisonment is so wrong and this HAS to be rectified. These innocent creatures deserve to be treated with the utmost respect NOT used and abused for man’s selfish whims!
