**BOYCOTT** MICHIGAN Renaissance Festival: until they DO NOT ALLOW EXOTIC ANIMAL VENDORS to participate in future festivals

Exotic animals are not meant to be on display in cages for human amusement. The babies are taken from their mothers to be handled by the public all day long, instead of sleeping, romping and enjoying the wild. They are constantly being waken to be held for profit. The vendor insist they are rescued- we all know that is false. The company does not get a constant stream of exotic babies coming their way...WE HAVE TO SPEAK FOR THE ANIMALS!! and BE HEARD!!

Please do not allow Premier Animal Attractions or any other exotic animal vendor to participate in the festival. This type of cruelty strips these animals of being able to live as they were born to. Instead they were bred to be exploited for profit and will live out their lives as money makers never being able to enjoy life as wild animals.
I will NEVER attend the Michigan Renaissance Festival until this cruelty is no longer allowed at the festival and will encourage everyone I know to do the same.
Please reconsider having this type of cruelty in the future and do what is right for the animals that cannot speak for themselves.
