Protect Animals Worldwide started this petition to Brateevo Circus Brateevo Circus

The Brateevo circus, a traveling circus now stationed Moscow, is notorious for the neglectful use of their animals. These animals are physically and emotionally abused in order to unnaturally perform tricks for human audiences.

Although many do not believe that it is true, circus animals are mistreated and abused. They are hit, poked, prodded, starved, and made to live in small cages for their entire lives. They are beaten and tortured by trainers until they learn the acts they are forced to.  At the Brateevo circus, the animals don’t perform the tricks for the human audiences because they enjoy it; they perform out of fear of what the trainers will do if they refuse. These animals should be allowed to live out their lives in proper sanctuaries, not in cages and under tents in the city. Circuses can still be entertaining without the use of animals. 


In order to make a change, we must show the Russian government that we do not condone animal cruelty, and one way we can do so is through a simple signature. We are required to obtain a minimum of 100,000 signatures to present to the Russian government, in order for our plea to be considered. Please help support the rights of  animals in the Brateevo circus, as well all animals forced to live their lives in captivity for human entertainment purposes.

For those of you in the Moscow area, boycott the Brateevo circus to demonstrate your support of animal welfare and conservation.

Additionally, we respectfully request the retirement of the animals currently used by the Brateevo circus to appropriate wildlife sanctuaries. Education and compassion are the keys to ending these terrible, ignorant acts.
