ABC recently announced a new program in development called Bazirkus,
a soap opera, which would feature a "fictional circus" modeled after
Ringling Brothers, which is notorious for its abuse of animals, and
would likely feature live wild animals in its production.
By using live wild animals, ABC would be participating in the abuse
inherent in the training and use of wild animals in entertainment. Contact ABC: http://abc.go.com/site/contact-us
Please do not discredit ABCs reputation by continuing with a new program in development called Bazirkus. Glamorizing circus animal acts by having a fictional circus show is not entertaining. Increasing evidence, lawsuits, and video footage about Ringling and other circuses shows how dangerous and horrific the circus really is. This program will directly link ABC to Ringling Bros and their unethical practices. Animal abuse is not funny, cute, or entertaining.
