    Stop using live animals for human entertainment! These poor animals are neglected & abused & do not deserve the treatment they endure!

    Stop the abuse and torture of the poor creatures that are forced to perform ridiculous tricks for ignorant, stupid people, who should know better!! Now is the time for change, no more circuses!!

    Stop showing elephants

    And transporting them

    They need to be in sanctuary

    Dear

    As a citizen concerned about animal welfare and the safety of our community, I am writing to urge not to host Universoul as long as they continue to use wild animals.

    Studies of the use of wild animals in traveling circuses show that their physical and behavioral needs cannot be met. Confined in small spaces and spending excessive amounts of time shut in transporters, animals are often seen behaving abnormally, their rocking, swaying and pacing movements indicating that they are in distress and not coping with their environment. Investigations by Animal Defenders International have revealed that industry standard training methods involve fear, pain, and punishment to force animals to perform.

    Keeping stressed, large and dangerous wild animals close to the public in lightweight, temporary enclosures has proven disastrous. Workers and members of the public have been killed and maimed; lions, tigers, elephants and other animals have escaped.

    Animal welfare and public safety should not be compromised for the sake of entertainment and I respectfully urge you to safeguard both by adopting a “no wild animals” policy for future events.

    Sincerely,

    Mary

    Please no more abuse, DO NOT use wild animals in your future show.

    this is so sad.
    Please please.

    Sincerely

    CAM
