Promote acts that don't use animals

Ringling Brothers, paints a picture of happy animals doing tricks because they like to.

In reality their elephants are whipped in the face and gouged with metal hooks; brutalized to perform tricks that are not normal for an elephant to do.

The USDA inspection reports are riddled with instances in which federal inspectors found that Ringling Brothers had failed to comply with minimum federal regulations and the circus was cited for causing animals unnecessary trauma, behavioral stress, physical harm and discomfort. When we promote circuses that use animals, we are endorsing cruelty.
