New York Takes a Stand Against Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus

Last week’s protest of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in Brooklyn, New York was attended by hundreds of supporters. Local campaigners held signs and handed out leaflets informing audiences about the suffering of animals in traveling circuses, encouraging them to boycott the circus. The message was clear – the animal circus is no longer acceptable in a modern, advanced society.

Here are a few pictures from the demonstration:

    The New York Times described the elephants journey up an elevator and walking across a huge turntable an “excellent adventure for them to arrive at the new arena.” I don’t think the elephants would agree to this description. Write the editor of the NYTimes to point out the real treatment these elephants endure and explain why they REALLY go into elevators and walk across moving giant turntables. (Can you say severe abuse and bull hooks?)

    Just read the article you mentioned and then read the author’s bio: “Starting in the early 1980s until the present, Mr. Collins has also been The Times’s premier (and pretty much only) circus reporter, writing more than 100 circus stories…. He wrote decades of stories on the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus…”
