Cancel Cruel Circus Whose Bear Urinated on Herself

Target: Susan Bulling, Events Coordinator of Lancaster Event Center

Goal: Ban the James Cristy Cole Circus from using animal acts in its show.

The Lancaster Event Center is planning on hosting a circus put together by the James Cristy Cole Circus which has featured a cruel bear show during past performances. The bear show, which is produced by Castle’s Bears, puts terrified bears in crowded, loud arenas. It is time to stop supporting this cruelty.

Animals used in circuses are often subjected to cruel forms of training, including whipping, hitting and withholding food. Footage from a recent performance shows the bears being tethered, muzzled and prodded. One bear was reportedly so stressed and nervous that she urinated on herself.

Sign this petition and demand the Lancaster Event Center either cancel its plans with the circus or only allow them to perform without animal acts. These animals belong in the wild, not in cages and putting on shows for humans.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Bulling,

The Lancaster Event Center is planning on hosting a circus put together by the James Cristy Cole Circus and Castle’s Bears. The show includes cruel bear performances. These animals belong in the wild, not in loud, crowded arenas.

Animals trapped in the entertainment industry are typically subjected to cruel training techniques. This includes, but is not limited to, chaining, whipping, hitting and withholding food. In addition, recent footage shows the bears being tethered, muzzled and prodded. One bear even urinated on herself, apparently due to her nerves and stress.

These animals experience fear and pain just like you and me. It is cruel to continue forcing these animals to perform ridiculous tricks for human entertainment. Please tell the James Cristy Cole Circus that it cannot perform unless it does so without its animal acts.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Ms Bulling – Women in the last century were ridiculed and jailed when they fought for equal job opportunities, and you use your hard-won position to facilitate animal abuse? (Hope this comment isn’t too thoughtful for you.)

  2. If Ms Bulling still allows this side show circus to still perform with the bears then people should vote with their purse and not go. Sometimes money is the only way to get through to some people.
    I and my family will not attend anything that involves animals. They are not here for our amusement.

  3. These cruel acts of hatred will most likely be an ongoing problem the hearts of these people need to change they need to realize that animals have feelings they feel pain they have emotion they have fear they’ve not been put on this universe for the criminals to abused and make money from it needs to stop people need to step up to the plate and realize that what they’re doing is Criminal and inhumane

  4. FOR ALL OF THESE INSANE AND INHUMANE BREED SOMEONE FORGOT MAIN THINGS IN HUMANES EDUCATION.
    WHO IS IT?

    ALL OF THAT  BARBARIC  MUD AND RESPONSIBLE  NONPERSONS  ARE ONLY SENSELESS FOR ALL OTHER TERRESTRIALS – RECYCLE THEM  TO ALLIGATORS – THE SINGLE MEANING OF THESE SCUM!

    I WOULD LET THEM URINATE THEM TOO ON THEIRS BY STRESSING THEM AS MUCH AS THEY DESERVES IF I COULD, THESE BARBARIC DESERVES INCLUDED ALL RESPONSIBLE PERSONS THERE NOT TO LIVE WITHIN CIVILIZED SOCIETIES.

  5. How anyone can actually enjoy going to circuses and other shows which blatantly and cruelly exploit wild animals is beyond me. It doesn’t take a genius to see these animals are terrified, stressed and would have been been physically and psychologically abused to make them perform these degrading tricks. Wild animals belong in the wild not in circuses.
