Demand Venue Cancel Cruel Circus Show

Circus chensiyuan

Target: Kent Digby, Operations Manager, National Harbor

Goal: Have venue cancel circus show unless it performs without animals.

UniverSoul Circus is notorious for allegedly hiring entertainers who abuse and neglect their animals and have numerous Animal Welfare Act violations. Unfortunately, these facts have not stopped the National Harbor from moving forward with its plan to feature UniverSoul Circus.

UniverSoul Circus’ current big cat trainer has admitted to keeping his animals in their cages for 24 hours a day up to seven days a week. In addition, UniverSoul Circus has had animals escape on more than one occasion. This puts both the animals and the people in the area in danger. UniverSoul Circus apparently lacks responsibility and respect for its animals.

Sign this petition and demand National Harbor cancel its plans with UniverSoul Circus unless it performs without animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Digby,

Your venue is planning on having UniverSoul Circus perform despite the numerous atrocities that this circus has allegedly committed.

UniverSoul Circus has had animals escape on more than one occasion. In addition, the two elephants currently traveling with UniverSoul Circus have tested positive for tuberculosis. This puts the animals and community in danger. As if these atrocities weren’t enough, the current big cat trainer for UniverSoul Circus has admitted to keeping his animals in their cages for 24 hours a day up to seven days a week.

Please consider canceling your plans with UniverSoul Circus unless it will perform without its animals. These animals belong in nature where they can play in the sunshine with friends, not stuck in cages waiting to entertain crowds.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Again the USDA does nothing for the animals… They fine these criminals for abusing these beautiful animals that have no business in cages or in cities. The USDA just keeps fining to keep their revenue up!!! Shut down this agency that wants tax payers money looking at abuse making money from abuse but not STOPPING abuse. Sick unethical and every employee of the USDA should be very ashamed.

  2. I protested at this circus once, the owner is a sad angry man who told he planned on beating the animals. What a very very sick person. Please STOP this show. DoNOT provide tenure for this disgusting spectacular of abuse sadness and horror! I’ll bet this venue will have lots of BAD karma from allowing this event. I hope any profits you make eat at your black souls and you choke on the money ?

  3. UniverSoul Circus should be SHUT DOWN, PERMANENTLY. There is a history of known animal abuse, and the USDA (as usual) is not taking action, allowing this cruelty to continue.

    Why is National Harbor scheduling this criminal organization? Can’t they find a company that doesn’t horrifically abuse animals? How about one that has talented humans?

    Close this hell hole down! What’s wrong with the authorities that they allow this heinous subhuman to continue to abuse these poor inmnocent souls by calling it a “circus” when in reality its a living hell for these animals? This guy should burn in hell!

    EVEN THE PEOPLE THAT PAY TO GO AND WATCH THESE POOR POOR CREATURES DO THE STUPID THINGS THEY ARE MADE TO DO NEED TO REALLY THINK ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE SEEING, ABSOLUTE CRUELTY, THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT TREATED WELL EITHER.

  6. Maxine Sheehan says:

    Why is the USDA not removing these animals from this monster’s, “care.?” These people need to get their acts to gather and do their jobs correctly. Protect animals from cruelty.

    And people think that Barnum n bailey is some huge victory while others won’t give it up. That’s right these stupid ignorant low class dumbasses can’t think of anything better to do with their kids. I protest too, the kids know better. We should overhaul the USDA. Fkn people they’re everywhere, hatem except the conscious people stepping up for the animals
