Cottonwood Arizona! Please stop allowing this barbaric so-called "entertainment" in our city! Wild and exotic animals such as elephants and wild cats are being severely abused to force them to perform. The use of starvation, tasers, bull hooks, whips, chains, blow torches, cattle prods and large sticks to beat them are all used to "train" these animals. These terrified animals perform out of fear. These circuses are NOT safe for the public!
Cottonwood City Council: Please remember YOUR duty as public servants to protect the citizens of Cottonwood. Do you want to wait till a child is hurt or killed? These animals are frustrated, beaten, and they are fully capable of running amok.
Public opinion has turned against these circuses! Please do your part in standing up to say, "no", we will not be complicit in this abuse; We will abide by The Animal Welfare Act. We will do the ONLY right thing, and stand with over 90 other US municipalities, 2 states, and countries all over the world, to affirm that we also, realize it is time to put a stop to these types of circuses.
