I am doing this petition to bring awarness on how harmful a lot of these circusis are how upsetting it is for us to see these magnificant animals who some are on the verge of extinction being taught how to stand on one foot or a stool. This of course isn't part of their natural habitat even if you say you take care of them the truth is that this is not their place and it isn't fair on the animals
Dear Luana Orfei and Mcdonalds Management,
Ever since I was a child altough my parents never took me to a circus I never was interested in going, I don't see it as a place of entertainment for anyone! the abuse that goes on behind the scenes is just horrific! and the fact that people know about this abuse but for entertainment purposes still take their children to see is just appauling.
I want to ban circus shows which involve animals in Malta once and for all, the family who has brought the circus here already have been convicted for animal cruelty;
In 2003, the attorney general of Reggio de Calabria, in southernItaly, issued a condemnation of the Luana Orfei circus for keeping 13 tigers (including three cubs), a hippopotamus, seven seals, a horse, a pony, three bears and two buffalo in cages considered too small.
The Nando Orfei circus was fined in 2003 for keeping four elephants tied up with metal chains in conditions harmful to the giant mammals' health. More info can be found ; http://lists.envirolink.org/pipermail/ar-news/Week-of-Mon-20040628/026558.html
This video was taken in malta a few days ago... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLg04nw71v8
Watching that how can an elephant and a lion enjoy being surrounded by all that noise! being tought what to do! and in that small centre stage... its just upsetting to me..
This is another video taken last year of the animals before the show http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNXUll2ZDyc&feature=related
I am also writing to stop Mcdonalds from promoting circus related toys given with the children's happy meal, because children are naive, they don't know the real truth so ofcourse they would be excited to go and see these animals dancing and doing these tricks! especially knowing that Mcdonalds is advertising these, makes them more interested.
