Cancel CRUEL Piccadilly Circus!

Piccadilly and other circuses routinely use animals such as elephants (in this case, they also use zebras, making them "dance" usually by cutting near the hooves and/or using chemical burns to make them trot, as well as racing camels and other barbaric feats) that are torn from their mothers in the wild, beaten into submission, "trained" with bull hooks and regularly live in the most unnatural conditions -- not to mention being subjected to dangerous transportation conditions. It's time circus ring leaders got the message loud and clear: the circus is bad business. Please sign and cross post and send a message to those businesses and politicians DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ADDING TO ANIMAL CRUELTY by allowing Piccadilly to come to Northfield Park and Northfield Village in general early August 2012. Thank you!

    2. Elephants Used in Circuses Routinely Contract TB

      Petition Organizer

      Excerpt from below link: "Elephants used by circuses have a heightened risk of developing active TB infections because their health is compromised by the constant stress of traveling inside filthy, poorly ventilated boxcars. They are also chained for up to 100 hours at a time and forced to perform unnatural and sometimes painful tricks."

    3. How ALL elephants in circuses are treated: FACT SHEET

      Petition Organizer

      This explains what you may be wondering about how elephants are routinely treated in circuses. And without the heat put on well-known circuses like Ringling Bros. by the likes of PETA, these lesser known ones get away with even more.

    4. Piccadilly AND Kelly Miller Circuses pile up in Northfield Park AND Village

      Lucy McKernan
      Petition Organizer

      Note that, regardless the exact name of the circus or location, both KM and Piccadilly are bringing their dreadful shows to Northfield this week; no doubt, Kelly Miller comes off the heels of Richfield this weekend. What a bloody mess! If you already signed the Richfield one, be sure to also sign this one. I've rec'd a large number of sigs on the Richfield one is just three days! Thank you!

      We should not be using animals to entertain humans in today's society - it is cruel, degrading and completely unnecessary. Please ban this now all around the world.
