Stop Big Top Animal Abuse

In animal circuses, the animals are abused severly, neglected, and sometimes killed. These animals are confined to extremely small spaces and it causes them to go mad. For example, the elephants in the Ringling Brothers circuses are beaten with sticks repeatedly and the animal attendants dig hooks into their skin and pull very hard to get the elephants to go where they want them to. All of the animals are beaten in training and rehearsals and it needs to stop. These animals are living their lives in misery. I'm asking you to please sign this petition to stop cruelty in animal circuses.

Here is a link to a video of the animals being abused: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECspj0daAlE&feature=player_embedded

I want to make animal circuses illegal and fineable in the United States.

      Les cirques doivent être fermés et les animaux doivent de fa^con urgent être récupérés et soignée. Personne n'a le droit de faire soufir un autre être vivant, alors pourquoi les gouvernements n,interviennent-ils pas pour mettre fin à toute cette souffrance. ces animaux sont un bien précieux que la vie nous donne, obligez les gens à les respecter et à en prendre soin. Agissez maintenant !
