Gilt.com: Stop selling tickets to Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus

I'm a Gilt member and was shocked to see this company promoting the Ringling Bros circus which is notorious for cruelty to elephants and other wild animals. I don't know that I can continue to support a company like this unless they listen to members like me who are against animal abuse.

Ringling Bros have been exposed for torturing and beating their elephants and forcing them to perform using whips, chains, and bullhooks. In the Ringling Bros. circus, elephants are beaten, hit, poked, prodded, and jabbed with sharp hooks, sometimes until bloody. Tigers are viciously struck with sticks so that they'll perform difficult and confusing tricks. There is video evidence and never before seen photos of Ringlings treatment of their elephants. Please review the website below to learn more about this organization that tortures animals.

Tell the popular shopping site Gilt.com to stop selling tickets to Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus in New York or any other city in the country. By selling and promoting tickets, Gilt.com is supporting the suffering of animals.

Stop selling tickets to Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus
Gilt is known for your customer service and brand quality. So I was extremely surprised to see that Gilt is selling tickets to Ringling Bros Circus. The circus uses animals for entertainment and is the center of controversy regarding their treatment of their animals. Ringling Bros have been exposed as torturing and beating their elephants and forcing them to perform using whips, chains, and bullhooks. In the Ringling Bros. circus, elephants are beaten, hit, poked, prodded, and jabbed with sharp hooks, sometimes until bloody. Tigers are viciously struck with sticks so that they'll perform difficult and confusing tricks. There is video evidence of Ringlings treatment of their elephants.Considering our day and age I am shocked that Gilt would support such an organization.
Please review the website below for more information regarding Ringling Bros and their treatment of elephants.

I urge you to stop selling tickets to this circus immediately and take a stand for animals. I will greatly reconsider where I take my business if Gilt continues to promote this organization. By promoting this circus you are promoting animal suffering. I trust that Gilt will do the right thing for animals.
