Cancel Circus Show Accused of Abusing Animals

Target: Matt Brown, Managing Director of Greensboro Coliseum Complex

Goal: Have venue cancel circus performance unless it performs without animals.

UniverSoul Circus is notorious for allegedly hiring entertainers who abuse and neglect their animals. Many reportedly even have recorded violations against the Animal Welfare Act. Despite all this, the Greensboro Coliseum Complex is moving forward with UnvierSoul Circus’ scheduled performances.

UniverSoul Circus’ current big cat trainer has admitted to keeping his cats trapped in their cages for 24 hours, seven days a week. The circus has also reportedly had animals escape twice. This puts the animals and public in danger.

Sign this petition and ask the Greensboro Coliseum Complex to cancel its plans with UniverSoul Circus unless it performs without animals.


Dear Mr. Brown,

Your venue is planning on having UniverSoul Circus perform. UniverSoul Circus has an extensive history of working with alleged animal abusers.

Currently, UniverSoul Circus’ big cat exhibitor has admitted to keeping his cats in their cages for 24 hours, seven days a week. The circus’ zebras have reportedly escaped on two occasions and its elephants have tested positive for tuberculosis. The circus’ carelessness puts the animals and the community in danger.

Please consider canceling your plans with UniverSoul Circus unless it performs without animals. These animals belong in nature surrounded by friends, not in cages and performing for audiences.

  1. Where is the USDA ? They are the agency that we pay our tax dollars to so that animals that are caged for hours, and or are to old to be carrying kids, or have been inadequately cared for are taken and are placed in a sanctuary to receive tha care the liberty and the peace to live out their lives. Yes greens bough should NOT allow that kind of torture and evil for the sake of greed. But ultimately the USDA can and should be helping get these animals who can NEVER have a complete life that nature intended to a proper sanctuary because we are a civilized society interested in the welfare of every creature who is imprisoned and tortured. Write and or call the USDA and see if you can get them to finally help these animals. There is loads of proof that they deserve to be sent to a sanctuary!
