Comments Off on Refuse to buy the Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus stamp; sign petition

Go to your local Post Office, any facility that sells stamps. Refuse to buy the Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus stamps !!!!  Tell them to stop advertising these stamps!!!!…..The brutality the Wild Animals in the Circus suffer from is not a joyous event!!!  Wake up people!!!!   Stop the abuse happening under “THE BIG TOPS“…..You can make it possible for these magnificent beings to live a life without being beaten into doing the stupid insulting tricks they are forced to do. None of the Wild Animals do these circus routines in the wild!!!!
Nor do they do them when not in the ring!!!! These animals are living a life of cruel and unusual punishment. When not in the ring they are chained or in small cages . This is animal abuse solely for financial gain for humans. The Cirque du Soleil is magnificent, uses no wild animals and the acrobats LOVE doing the aerobatics, it is their lifetime careers……There is never a need for wild animals to suffer. Do not buy the circus stamps!!!  And PLEASE, do not attend THE BARNUM & BAILEY CIRCUS or any circus where wild animals are being exploited, and they all are!!!!!!

 

Thank you so much…you’re voice is important…..PLEASE USE IT!!!

Take Action to Help Ailing Elephants Now

Comments Off on Take Action to Help Ailing Elephants Now

Imagine if you had to walk to work every day while suffering from a debilitating medical condition that caused your joints to ache and your feet to throb. At work, you’d be kept on your feet constantly and forced to perform physical labor for long shifts. You’d be given no chance to recuperate (much less retire), and when you slowed down or balked, your boss would hit youwith something resembling a fireplace poker or would stick the pointy end of the instrument under your chin and drag you around. When you weren’t working, you would live in chains and wouldn’t be given any medication for pain.

That’s pretty much what life is like for Karen, Nicole, and Sara—three elephants who are shunted from town to town by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

Recently, independent exotic-animal veterinarians and a retired elephant manager, with nearly 100 years of combined experience, observed the elephants while the circus was in Charlotte. According to their official reports, all three elephants are suffering from lameness—a painful condition that can be made worse by the awkward contortions required to perform circus tricks and by a meager “life” on the road. Nicole and Karen also suffer from arthritis, and Sara, who is only 10 years old, is well on her way to developing the disease. Ringling has ignored all recommendations that Nicole be excluded from performing certain routines, and now she is in such poor physical condition that experts insist that keeping her on the road constitutes “unnecessary cruelty.”

Elephants are meant to move about, roaming for miles over grass and soft terrain and engaging in activities that come naturally to them. These hurting girls are not meant to stand on urine- and feces-covered cement for hours on end or to be beaten and forced by Ringling to perform harmful, unnatural tricks that strain their aching muscles and joints.

Please take a minute of your time to help spare Karen, Nicole, and Sara from additional suffering by politely urging Secretary of Agriculture Thomas J. Vilsack to stop folding to pressure from Ringling and to immediately seize these ailing elephants before it’s too late—foot disorders and arthritis are the leading reasons for euthanasia in captive elephants.

Sign Petition Here:-https://secure.peta.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=3311

Ringling is currently requesting a permit that would allow the circus to continue harming endangered Asian elephants and leopards. With such a history of violations, it is clear that Ringling cannot meet the requirements of the Endangered Species Act, and should not be given a permit.
