There will be four performing bears at the circus doing many things from walking around mussled and restrained wearing clothes, performing tricks and worst of all doing tight rope walking. This is the first time in 20 years the show will be getting done. These bears are dragged around and forced to perform to crowds paying £30 a ticked to see beautiful animals being abused at the hands of man in the name of greed, people will take their children and by doing so will show the children that its ok to abuse animals for your own pleasure, is this right ?. Should we allow this to happen ?... This is 2013 not 1813. Its time to protect and respect these amazing animals not abuse them for money...
These bears are FORCED to do a 3 years training programe to perform to and for so called human beings, Tight rope walking with no safety nets the show runs for 2 hours a night for 2 weeks, 7 days a week. Does the bear have an option in what it does, NO. Is this how treat animals ?, is this what we want in our world ? NO. Will you take a stand and sign, share and pass this on, I hope so. We ask the owners of the circus and the Russian government to make sure that these bears are released to an animal sanctuary so they can live in peace and be happy, be safe and to be loved and respected. Its love over due and this barbaric treatment of animals has to stop, they are not there for our entertainment... Here is the sites, please feel free to contact the circus and tell them that this has to stop, also the information to the ECA, feel free to mail them and contact and let them know what you think of these disgusting acts...
In the weeks on the run up to an even on the the bears is chained and dragged around the streets in order to try and boost ticket sales, to see the photos please follow this link -- http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2273336/Dressed-basket-umbrella-Cruel-photos-shows-circus-bears-forced-perform-Russian-travelling-troupe.html#axzz2Jy1MPMMU --
These animals are lonely, ill treated and what they are made to do is abuse, pure and simple. There is no excuse for it, there is NO need for it and it needs to be stopped and banned NO animals deserve to be worked like this. Some bears have been known to kill their trainers and I think if I was treated like this I will kill as well, there is no need for this, this is NOT fun, this is NOT entertainment, this IS cruel, disgusting and barbaric and needs to stop now. I ask you to send this world wide, post it everywhere you can, mail it, tweet it, post on Facebook but most of all, SIGN and get the word out. I thank you all for your help and for signing. Keep up the good work and fight the good fight. With respect always,

Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
