Letter to WMHT Public TV about Circus Promotion – 7 May 2008

From: Frank and Mary Hoffman
To: email@wmht.org
Subject: Circus Promotion

Dear Mr. Altman:

Surely you are aware of the intrinsic barbarity involved in nonhuman animal “entertainment” as featured in circuses? The extreme suffering involved in “training” animals is well documented, and injuries to human onlookers make the news.

Please stop your promotion of the circus. Such abuse also undermines your efforts in educating children. It’s time to move into the 21st century and take seriously the moral and ethical responsibility to sentient beings – both human and nonhuman. Surely, as a civilized society, we must do no less.

Sincerely,

Hoffman Family Foundation
Frank and Mary Hoffman
