Stop Cruel Circus That Allegedly Beats Animals

Target: Jerry G. Gantt, Imperial Sir of Arabia Shrine

Goal: Stop Arabia Shrine from hosting the cruel Jordan World Circus unless it drops its animal acts.

Despite Jordan World Circus’ terrible reputation of allegedly beating and neglecting its animals, Arabia Shrine in Texas still plans on hosting the circus. It is time to stop supporting this cruel form of entertainment.

Jordan World Circus has racked up so many Animal Welfare Act (AWA) violations that it is apparently no longer allowed to exhibit animals. Instead, the circus leases animals from Brett Carden and Carson & Barnes Circus. While these two still have the right to exhibit animals, they also have questionable histories when it comes to animal welfare. Mr. Carden’s elephants were apparently recorded showing excessive stress signs and one elephant seemed to be injured as she kept all her weight shifted off her back, left leg. Carson & Barnes Circus has made over 100 AWA violations for a variety of issues, including failure to provide veterinary care that led to preventable deaths, according to reports. Handlers from Carson & Barnes Circus have also reportedly been recorded beating elephants with bullhooks.

No animal should suffer for human entertainment. Sign this petition and demand Arabia Shrine cancel its plans with Jordan World Circus unless it drops its animal acts.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Imperial Sir Gantt,

Despite knowing of Jordan World Circus’ dark past when it comes to animal welfare, your venue still plans on hosting the circus. It is time to stop supporting an industry that profits off of animal suffering.

Jordan World Circus has lost its right to exhibit animals due to its apparently overwhelming amount of Animal Welfare Act (AWA) violations. The circus currently leases animals from Brett Carden and Carson & Barnes Circus, who also have questionable reputations when it comes to animal welfare, according to reports. Mr. Carden’s elephants have been recorded showing excessive signs of stress, while one elephant’s back, left leg seemed to be injured as she kept all her weight shifted to the right. Carson & Barnes Circus has racked over 100 AWA violations for various reasons, including the alleged failure to provide veterinary care that led to the death of two hippos.

Please consider no longer allowing Jordan World Circus to perform at your arena unless it drops its animal acts. These animals belong in the wild, not in cages and crowded arenas suffering for human entertainment.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
