Protest Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus- March 4th, 6pm through March 8th!
Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus is notorious for beating their animals with bullhooks (weapons resembling fireplace pokers) to perform tricks and forcing their animals to spend up to 100 hours at a time in train box cars.
Please join LION and PETA to educate the public about this abuse!
Support the Exotic Animal Protection Act!
US RESIDENTS: please support The Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act (TEAPA) or known as HR4525, by urging your Assembly members to co-sponsor, as well as urge your Senate members to introduce the bill! Find your representatives here: http://www.contactingthecongress.org/
NEW YORKERS: Please take this extra step for animals in circuses by supporting the Traveling Wild and Exotic Animal Act (A.5407/S.5971) for New York State!
A bill, introduced in both the New York State House of Reps. and the New York State Senate is the state-wide option as well! Please CALL your government officials (find them here: http://www.nysenate.gov/andhttp://assembly.state.ny.us/) and follow-up by signing this petition: http://bit.ly/NYTEAPA
