Show compassion for animals by avoiding circus

Published in THE JOURNAL NEWS, date unavailable:

When you are watching the upcoming Ringling Bros. circus, consider the following:  Would a two-ton elephant really stand on her head merely for an offer of a peanut?  Could the talk of beatings, food deprivation, etc., be true?  And do you really need to see this spectacle in the first place?

Teach your children compassion for animals.  Please say no to the circus.
