The City of Valdosta: Discontinue Providing Permits To Animal Circuses

    1. Rachel Gardiner
    2. Petition by

      Rachel Gardiner

      Valdosta, GA

Thanks to undercover footage and ex-trainers, animal abuse in the circus industry has been exposed more than ever. This includes circuses such as Ringling Brothers, Cole Beatty, Carson and Barnes and The Shrine Circus. The animal welfare act was written to protect exotic animals just as much as domestic. Please urge the city of Valdosta, Ga. and surrounding counties to discontinue supporting animal circuses and to deny them the permits allowing them to perform here.

      Appalling behaviour by disfunctional idiots who should not be allowed near animals or humans.

      I have always hated circuses even as a child. I treasure my freedom of walking free in the woods, along beaches or wherever & I can't imagine any creature doing less. I have seen small circuses come to shopping centers & they put these animals in cages so small they can't move. It is disgusting & I despise this!! All circuses should be banned everywhere as far as I am concerned!! Making these animals suffer for our entertainment is NOT acceptable to me!!
