Richfield, Stop Clowning Around; STOP CRUEL CIRCUS!

      Seven Hills, OH

Kelly Miller and other circuses routinely use animals such as elephants that are torn from their mothers in the wild, beaten into submission, "trained" with bull hooks and regularly live in the most unnatural conditions -- not to mention being subjected to dangerous transportation conditions. It's time circus ring leaders got the message loud and clear: the circus is bad business. Please sign and cross post and send a message to those businesses and politicians DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ADDING TO ANIMAL CRUELTY by allowing Kelly Miller to come to town. Thank you!

      These are the months community leaders are planning or have planned summer events. The news is, I don't see that Richfield has caught on. Let's stop this circus with petitions, protests and pleas!

      With nearly a half million dollars in profits -- no doubt with the help of the Richfield Chamber of Commerce -- Richfield TOWN TRUST is directly profiting from this Kelly Miller Circus; the only online Town Trust contact is a phone number that just rings and rings and rings.

      What the public does not see is the abuse behind the scenes. If you attend the circus and applaud the animal acts you are applauding the trainer's ability to dominate the animal through brutality. The Kelly Miller Circus may tout the circus as family entertainment, but for the animals it is a family tragedy.

      What the public does not see is the abuse behind the scenes. The elephants, tigers, camels and horses lead lives of misery as they are trucked from place to place their entire lives for greed!

      Animals are not here for our use or entertainment. There is enough evidence now to prove how bad it is for animals in the circus it needs to stop.
