Living Social: Stop Selling Tickets to Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus

I'm a Living Social 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. Please call 1-855-548-7625 and Tweet at CEO https://twitter.com/oshy in addition to signing!

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 Ringling's treatment of their elephants. Please review the website below to learn more about this organization that tortures animals.

Tell the popular shopping site LivingSocial.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, LivingSocial.com is supporting the suffering of animals.
