Demand University Cancel Cruel Circus Show

Target: Mark Becker, President of Georgia State University

Goal: Cancel plans with the cruel traveling circus UniverSoul.

Georgia State University plans on hosting the notoriously cruel traveling circus, UniverSoul. Not only does this circus allegedly neglect and abuse its animals, but it has also put communities in danger.

Animals in captivity face daily mental and physical hardships. Their lives are typically shorter than that of their wild counterparts and filled with much more stress. One of the circus’ animal trainers admitted to keeping his big cats in their cages for 24 hours a day up to seven days a week. In addition, animals have escaped from UniverSoul twice which put the animals and the community in danger.

Sign this petition and urge Georgia State University to cancel its plans with UniverSoul. These animals should not continue to be exploited for human entertainment.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Becker,

Your university plans on hosting the UniverSoul circus which is notorious for its alleged animal abuse and neglect. A few of the exhibitors even have citations with the USDA.

Not only does this circus allegedly abuse and neglect its animals, but animals have escaped from UniverSoul twice. This put the animals and the community in great danger. UniverSoul’s current big cat exhibitor has admitted to keeping his animals in their cages for 24 hours a day up to seven days a week.  Captivity and the large crowds these animals are forced to “perform” in front of cause great stress and many physical and mental hardships.

Please consider canceling your plans with UniverSoul circus. These animals should not be forced into a life of captivity for mere human entertainment.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Animals are NOT ENTERTAINERS!!! ALL CIRCUSES WILL EVENTUALLY BE SHUT DOWN–PERMANENTLY!!

  2. Animals used in circuses are ALWAYS abused. If this university supports UniverSoul, they will be both condoning animal cruelty and complicit in it.

  3. END THE SUPPORT FOR THE ANIMAL ABUSING CIRCUS NOW.

  4. Anne Moeller Anne Moeller says:

    Let the animals live the rest of their lives free in a respectful sanctuary and put the people on (display)

  5. I’m surprised that the university aren’t clever enough to know this is totally wrong!!! Dumb hicks obviously…

  6. Patricia Dumais says:

    A University hosting a circus??!!! Never heard of such a thing… There are better ways to raise money if that is their aim.

  7. #BoycottCircuses There is nothing entertaining about animals being forced inot submission and kept in cages in captivity. The circus is an antiquated freak show that causes animals to suffer. Don’t contribute to cruelty by going to the circus. Georgia State University students should be ashamed of their school.
