Stop Circus Suffering

Take Action: Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Demonstration, Los Angeles

ADI to hold demonstration outside Ringlings circus

July 14th – July 18th 2010

Staples Center, Downtown LA

1111 S. Figueroa Street
Los Angeles, CA 90015

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is coming to LA this July. ADI has previously exposed animal suffering in Ringlings circus, and will be holding a demonstration to oppose the use of animals in circus acts. It would be excellent if you could spare some time to demonstrate at one of the dates below, and speak out against circus suffering.

When the circus comes to town…

Life for animals in circuses is one of deprivation and suffering. They suffer long, arduous journeys. For most of the year, they live on the backs of trucks, tied in stalls, and chained. And they are forced to perform unnatural tricks for human entertainment. In these impoverished, unnatural conditions, it is no surprise that circus animals are in a physically poor state, and live in a state of severe distress and mental suffering.

Whipped, beaten, chained & kicked

ADI investigations in the USA have uncovered the disturbing truth that the use of violence to control animals is part of the circus culture. We have filmed elephants beaten, given electric shocks, and kicked in the face. We have even filmed a tiger cub being beaten in the face. This is part and parcel of circus life for these animals.

Join our demonstration

Please join us in opposing these cruel and unnatural acts this July. We will assemble on the corner of 12th Street and Figueroa.We will have signs and banners or you may bring your own. Tell your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors to come out as well. A few hours can make a difference in getting the word out that circuses are no place for animals.

You can RSVP on Facebook, e-mail ( us and put “RSVP Circus Demo” in the subject line and state your availability, or you can call our office at 323-935-2234.

Thank You.
