Tell the Colorado Renaissance Festival to Stop Using Exotic Animals as Entertainment

There is a show at the Colorado Renaissance Festival that is called “Endangered Cat Show”. They claim it is “educational and entertaining” but I believe they are more focused on the entertainment rather than the education! You can educate people without using these animals as stage props and making them perform.

Please help others realize that social responsibility has evolved beyond allowing the abuse of animals for entertainment and these beautiful animals deserve a life of dignity and respect.

Please also visit HERE and send your feedback to the festival directly and let them know how you feel about this exploitation.

Please tell the Colorado Renaissance Festival and the Great Cats World Park to stop using these animals for entertainment.

Ten Fast Facts about Captive Exotic Animals

Tiger on a leash at Colorado Renaissance Festival – how safe is it?


Elephants and a camel giving rides:

Elephants and a camel chained and giving rides all summer! Industries that use captive wild animals, such as the circus, roadside attractions, and festivals frequently engage in abusive training methods, such as the use of hooks, chains, whips, electric prods, and blunt instruments. Please help these beautiful creatures escape from a life of “entertainment”.

Please also visit HERE and send your feedback to the festival and let them know directly how you feel about this exploitation.

Thank you for your support!
