Protest Ringling Brother's Circus

from [email protected] 

I am interested in providing information and support to folks in the following cities who want to help protest the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus due to their cruel treatment of elephants. Did you know that USDA has determined that Ringling elephant practices have caused "unnecessary" trauma, behavioral stress, physical harm and discomfort to elephants? Did you know that there is a lawsuit pending against Ringling due to their treatment of baby elephants? And did you know that former Ringling elephant workers have now gone public about the routine beating and chaining of elephants?

If you or someone you know is planning a demo in the following cities, please contact me directly at this email address or call me at 202.518.3700.

Thanks for helping protect the Ringling Brothers Elephants!
