ACTION

The time has come to end traveling animal acts. Tell your family, friends and neighbors. Let’s raise a ruckus and get this thing done!

Write to your U.S. senators and representatives telling them to move S2121 and HR2863 to a vote and to pass this important legislation. Tweet and post on their Facebook pages and follow up with a call to be sure these bills are finally passed.

INFORMATION

Some talking points for you:

  • TEAPSPA will stop the suffering of circus animals.
  • Studies on the use of wild animals in traveling acts show that circuses cannot meet the physical or behavioral needs of wild animals.
  • Animals are confined in small spaces, deprived of physical and social needs, and spend excessive time shut in trailers and train cars.
  • These animals often demonstrate abnormal behaviors – rocking, swaying, and pacing – indicating they are in distress and not coping with their environment.
  • Animal Defenders International's video evidence shows these animals are forced to perform tricks through physical violence, fear, and intimidation.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
