Boycott Ringling Bros. Circus

The circus has a horrific record of animal neglect and in 2011, had to pay  $270,000,-the largest penalty against an exhibitor under the Animal Welfare Act for dozens of AWA violations dating from June 2007 to August 2011.

The circus boasts that its three units travel more than 25,000 miles as the circus tours the country for 11 months each year. Ringling's own documents reveal that on average, elephants are chained for more than 26 hours straight and are sometimes continually chained for as many as 60 to 100 hours. Tigers and lions usually live and travel in cages that provide barely enough room for the animals to turn around.

Boycott this display where animals spend their lives in captivity, spend their lives traveling and being forced to perform circus tricks for human entertainment. There are entertaining circus alternatives that use no animals.
