Stop the Daily News promotion of Ringling Brothers Circus sign now

We urge the Daily News to drop their promoting of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. This circus has failed to meet minimal federal standards for the care of animals used in exhibition as established in the Animal Welfare Act (AWA). Ringling paid $20,000 to settle U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) charges of failing to provide veterinary care to a dying baby elephant. The USDA has also cited Ringling for failure to possess records of veterinary care, failure to provide animals with sufficient space, failure to provide animals with exercise, and endangering tigers who were nearly baked alive in a boxcar because of poor maintenance of their enclosures. Ringling is under investigation for the death of a 2-year-old lion who is believed to have died from heatstroke. In less than two years, two baby elephants died, a caged tiger was shot to death, a horse who was used despite a chronic medical condition died during Ringlings traditional animal march, and a wild-caught sea lion was found dead in her transport container. Of the 60 elephants touring with Ringling and kept at its Florida compounds, 44 were captured in the wild. At least 19 elephants have died since 1992.The circus may seem like a fun, family event but animals should not have to pay the price for our entertainment. They are taken from their natural environments and forced to do unnatural acts in front of audiences.

We will boycott the Daily News and urge our friends and family to do the same.
