The Cruelest Show on Earth

You all know I’m an animal lover.  My love for animals goes way beyond my 3 pugs.  I was recently heartbroken when I saw a video made this year at Ringling Brothers Circus.  I’ve never been a fan of the circus and I’ve long known that they abuse SayNoElephantanimals, but to see that STILL, in 2009, that they haven’t cleaned up their act just sickens me. PLEASE do not support ANY animal circus.   Now, the circus says that PETA is just a wacky, out of control group, but hey, video doesn’t lie.  Need proof of what’s going on?

Click here and watch the video I saw recently.

Please tell your friends and family members about what’s going on in the circus.  Show them the pictures and the videos.  Animals can’t ask for help.  We have to step up for them.

  1. I can’t watch it. I took my niece and nephew to the local circus by their house and the animal protesters were out front with flyers that had a link to a similar video. I watched that one and it broke my heart.

    I don’t think I will ever be going back to the circus again. Nor will my children. So, so sad 😦


    1. So glad to hear that Michelle! Not that it broke your heart, but that you won’t go back. I’m proud to call you my bloggy friend!


  2. OK, I can’t even watch the video. I’ve heard too many stories.
    My mother in law gets very mad at me each year when she wants to take the kids to the local, backwoods, redneck, middle-of-nowhere circus and I refuse to have anything to do with it.
    If big, fancy circuses are so disgusting, I can only image what the local yokels are like.
    Makes me SICK!


    1. Nikki, I’m sure it’s hard but I’m so proud to call you a bloggy friend. Knowing that you stand up to your MIL and not let your kids go to the circus.
