Outer Harbor Buffalo - Cancel UniverSoul Circus Performance

UniverSoul Circus still includes animals in their performances. These animals include elephants, tigers, horses, camels and more. Many countries have banned the use of wild animals in performances, but unfortunately the US is not one of them. Despite this, many venues have been canceling performances that include wild animals. UniverSoul circus violated an animal abuse ordinance in 2015 when an animal handler used a bull hook on an elephant in front of the crowd. Past employees have also come forward to say that the elephants are chained up any time they aren't performing. Wild animals should be just that, wild, and if they are unable to be released into the wild then they should be at an accredited sanctuary, not performing tricks. 


Buffalo's waterfront has made huge improvements over the past few years and is becoming a hotspot for the city. Don't ruin how far it has come by supporting animal abuse. I attended an event for the SPCA at the same location that this is being held. How can we help pets and then turn a blind eye to wild animals? We need to show future generations that abusing animals IS NOT OKAY. 

I am asking Robert Gioia, Chairman of the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation, to cancel UniverSoul's upcoming performance August 14th.
