Praise Ban of Abusive Wild Animal Acts

Target: Sherry Bondy, Councillor for Ward 4 – Harrow of Essex, Ontario

Goal: Praise Essex, Ontario for banning wild animal acts.

Essex, Ontario recently passed a law that bans wild animal acts, which in turn means many circuses are now banned from performing in the town. This is a huge step in the right direction and a great protective measure for many animals.

Animals used in the circus face many physical and mental hardships daily. They are forced to do tricks in front of large, jeering crowds and are then stuffed away in cages when not performing. In addition, these animals are subjected to terribly cruel training methods including physical pain, starvation and prolonged chaining.

Sign this petition and thank Essex for going the extra yard to help prevent animal cruelty and be a voice for animals. It is inspiring to see people joining together to help those that cannot help themselves.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Bondy,

Recently Essex, Ontario made the groundbreaking decision to ban wild animal acts. This is a great victory for animal liberation.

As you know, animals used in the entertainment industry face many hardships daily. Captivity leads to many physical and mental problems in animals. They are forced to perform tricks in front of large, jeering crowds and are then stuffed into cages when it is not show time. These animals are typically trained using various barbaric methods including physical pain, starvation and prolonged chaining.

Thank you for taking the initiative and banning wild animal acts from your town. If the animals could speak for themselves, they would thank you immensely. I can only hope more cities and towns will follow in your footsteps.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Thank God, it seems that finally we humans are realizing how cruel we have been — and still are, unfortunately — to our beautiful fellow animals. Thank you, Essex, for seeing the light and joining so many of the rest of us. You have set a phenomenally good example!

    Doing tricks is more for human beings , not for animals. talented People are able to do tricks, Animals not.

  3. QUEREMOS QUE LOS GOBIERNOS EN TODO EL MUNDO REPRIMAN ABSOLUTAMENTE LA CACERÍA, EL TRÁFICO DE ANIMALES O DE PARTES DE ANIMALES; QUE LOS DEJEN EN PAZ EN LA VIDA SALVAJE, EN SUS HÁBITATS Y RESPETEN LA NATURALEZA. LOS ANIMALES NO SON TROFEOS, NO SON ENTRETENIMIENTO Y NO SON PARTE DE LA DECORACIÓN DE NINGUNA CASA, NO SON PARTE DE UN CIRCO Y NO PUEDEN SEGUIR ABUSANDO DE ELLOS EN LOS ZOOLÓGICOS. ALTO A ESTOS CRÍMENES EN CONTRA DE LA VIDA Y DE LA NATURALEZA.

  4. THANK YOU FOR THIS, JUST HOPE IT IS PUT INTO PRACTICE

  5. E . Meeester says:

    thank you for this. I hope that wild animals will be banned in whole Europe and world wide. Ik hope that cattle acts (non wild animals)will be banned too.

    Baha’i Writings ~ “To the blessed animals, however, the utmost kindness should be exercised: the more the better it will be. Man is generally sinful and the animal is innocent”
    Hadith No. 557 ~ ”O Allah’s Apostle! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals? He replied: Yes, there is a reward for serving any animate (living being).”
    Proverbs 12.10 ~ A righteous man has regard for the life of his animals.
    Psalm 34:16 ~ The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. God created all the animals
    Psalm 50:10 ~God cares for the animals. “Jesus said: ‘are not the five sparrows sold for two copper coins and not one of them is forgotten before God.
    Psalm 104 ~ All animals belong to God.
    Mahatma Gandhi ~ “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
    Buddha ~ “It is more important to prevent animal suffering, rather than sit to contemplate the evils of the universe praying in the company of priests.”
