Please take the time to sign this petition to stop the Cole Brothers Circus from coming to the city of Milford next year or ever again! Thank you very much.
We the undersigned are writing to inform you of the many US Dept. of Agriculture citations for animal abuse and neglect against the Cole Brothers Circus. As of 2008, Cole Bros. Circus does not have its own USDA license and must lease its animal acts from other circuses, one being Carson and Barnes Circus which has also been cited many times for it's own animal abuse. The owner of Cole Brothers Circus plead guilty to violating the Endangered Species Act.
I feel that it is my responsibility to educate people to respect and care for all living things. Many cities and large corporations have stopped supporting circuses because of these abuses and the safety hazards to unsuspecting families that visit.
I urge you to be a voice for the animals of the circus, who cannot speak up for themselves. Please don't support the Cole Brothers Circus and let's try to stop them from coming back to the Westfield Mall or anywhere in our lovely city. Thank you for hearing us and opening your hearts.
"Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty."
Stop the circus from coming to the City of Milford.
The Cole Brother's Circus has not had a USDA Exhibitor's license since 2008. They have been cited many times over the years for neglect, inadequate veterinary care for the animals and animal abuse. John Pugh, the owner of the circus also plead guilty to violating the endangered species act.
