Stop Hosting Cruel Animal Circuses

Target: Dave Scott, President and CEO of Spectra by Comcast Spectacor

Goal: Stop all Spectra-owned venues from hosting cruel animal circuses.

Spectra-owned venues, which are scattered across the U.S. and Canada, continue to host animal circuses despite their notorious histories of abuse and neglect. Many venues have already committed to an animal-free policy and it is time Spectra do the same.

Animals trapped in circuses are denied everything natural to them. They often put through a grueling training process that uses fear and pain to coerce them into doing tricks. When the animals are not being forced to perform, they are typically kept in small cages where they are denied proper socialization and sunshine.

Sign this petition to demand Comcast Spectacor end its support of these cruel animal acts.


Dear Mr. Scott,

Many circuses have a long history of abuse and neglect when it comes to their animals. Despite this information, Spectra-owned venues continue to host animal circuses. It is time to stop supporting these cruel performances.

Many of the animals trapped in circuses were taken from the wild and away from their families. They are then typically put through a painful training process that uses fear tactics to coerce animals into performing. When the animals are not performing in loud, crowded arenas, they are often kept in cages. It is a sad life for these animals and far from their natural, intended life.

Please consider no longer hosting circuses unless they agree to perform without animals. No animal should be abused and exploited for profit.

  2. Animals aren’t here for our entertainment! There should be NO animal acts on this planet …. period!

  3. As more and more people learn about the animal abuse that happens behind the scenes in institutions such as this, the less people want to participate in them and it’s about time!

  4. Those five cats should attack him. He wouldn’t stand a chance & he’d get what he deserves. This needs to STOP!

  5. Denise Baudin says:


    Since towns/cities “decision makers” chose to look the other way and ignore the suffering of animals in those BLOODY/ABUSIVE zoos/circuses, it is up to us to shut down those cruel “businesses” by NOT buying tickets.
    LET’S WATCH THEM GO UNDER 🙂 and save wildlife.
