Massachusetts: Ban Wild Animals in Circuses!

  • by: Care2 Team
  • recipient: Massachusetts state legislature and Governor Maura Healy
State legislators in Massachusetts are on the brink of passing a bill that would finally end the use of elephants, big cats, primates, giraffes, and bears in traveling exhibits and shows! This would make the state the ninth in the U.S. to ban wild animals in circuses.

We must make sure politicians pass this bill into law by letting state legislators and the Massachusetts governor know that these animals deserve protection.

Sign now to tell Massachusetts legislators and Governor Maura Healy to vote yes and sign this amazing bill into law!

It is no secret that wild animals suffer tremendously in circuses. These poor, sentient creatures experience intense confinement and loneliness, as well as extreme pain while being transported and exhibited.

Perhaps worst of all, trainers are notoriously cruel in their training.

The tactics circus trainers could be straight out of a horror film. From electric prods and bullhooks to literal whips, these animals are abused day in and out, all for the entertainment of humans. But this new bill could put an end to these torturous practices for good.

It is time the state of Massachusetts stands up for wild animals and passes this landmark legislation! Sign the petition now if you agree!
