The circus is in town

The circus is here. PhotobucketAnd it just breaks my heart. I certainly won’t be going and won’t be taking my nephews or giving the circus money. I refuse to fund animal cruelty. Want to see what I’m talking about? Click here then click on Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey to see why I boycott animal cruelty and choose cruelty free circuses like Cirque du Soleil.

  1. Ok, I have to admit when I saw the title and picture of your post I was like “No! Shannon! Not the circus!” I have to say I’m very pleased to see that you feel the same way I do. I also have to say that I couldn’t even click on the link, afraid of what I might see.
    I have never been to the circus, and will never go to one. Every time someone I know is going to go, I start my spiel! Can’t even stand to go to a rodeo. I’ve been one time (by force—–guilt, I guess) and all I could do was cry over the poor calves.
    Maybe I’m over sensitive and a PETA freak or something, but I just can’t stomach any type of animal cruelty or exploitation.
    (and I have seen the Cirque du Soleil——PHENOMENAL!!)
    OK. I’m off my soapbox now!
    Thanks Shannon! šŸ™‚

  2. I completely agree about the animals in circuses, but man I HATE PETA. They are a bunch of nut-jobs. Dogs have been domesticated for eons and there’s no way they have the right to euthanize animals from shelters!!! Talk about curel. šŸ˜›

  3. YAY!!! It’s so nice when someone else agrees with me about the dadgum circus. I hate, hate, HATE them, and I’ve boycotted them all my adult life. Thanks for speaking out!

  4. I thought you were going to say you were and then I wasn’t going to comment. But I am on your side. I hate the circus because of that reason, also cause clowns give me the heebee jeebeez(didn’t realize there were so many of us out there). PETA also gives me the heebee jeebeez.

  5. I have never been to a circus for the exact same reasons. Wesley really wanted to go, but we talked a little about animal cruelty to him. He understands now and tells all his friends while the circus is bad:) LOL! My little activist!!

    Aw! I love that! Way to go Mom! I wish more moms would educate their children about stuff like this!

  6. I’m not sure who to believe when it comes to Peta or the Circus people – heard both ways. I did go to the circus and they talked about how well their elephant’s have done. Not taking sides either way though.
