Demand Venue Cancel Plans with Cruel Circus

Target: Michael T. Reynolds, National Parks Service Director

Goal: Have Floyd Bennett Aviation Field cancel its plans with UniverSoul Circus.

Despite the UniverSoul Circus’ questionable history, the show has plans with quite a few venues across the nation. Animals trapped in circuses are typically abused and neglected. It is time to stop imprisoning these animals for human entertainment.

Recently, animal services in Georgia, where the circus’ headquarters are located, inspected the facility and discovered several issues with the animals’ health. Several of the horses had chipped and cracked hooves. Elephants were forced to stand on concrete despite their bruised feet and were given no water and very little hay; one of these elephants had a puncture wound on his ankle that seemed to be left untreated. A camel had an inflamed ankle that still needed to be treated, another camel had a three-inch cut on his leg, and a zebra had a wound on his nose.

Sign this petition and demand the venue cancel its plans with UniverSoul Circus. These animals should not be forced to endure this cruelty any longer.


Dear Director Reynolds,

The Floyd Bennett Aviation Field is soon planning on hosting UniverSoul Circus, a traveling performance show, which has a questionable history in regards to how it treats its animals. It is time to stop forcing these animals to endure this cruelty for human entertainment.

Recently, animal services inspected the circus’ headquarters. Officers found that several of the horses had painful looking, chipped and cracked hooves, elephants were forced to stand on concrete despite their bruised feet, these same elephants were given no water and very little hay, and many of the animals had existing injuries that seemed to be left untreated. Some of these injuries include a puncture wound on an elephant’s ankle, an inflamed ankle on a camel, and a three-inch cut on another camel’s leg. In addition to these atrocities, animals have escaped from UniverSoul on multiple occasions, which endangers not only the animals but local communities as well.

Please consider canceling your plans with UniverSoul Circus. This circus clearly lacks responsibility and respect for its animals and the communities it visits.

  2. It’s just unbelievable that anyone still hosts UniverSoul Circus, with their record of animal cruelty being widely known. Anyone who hosts them is complicit in their cruelty of animals, and, with their money, is supporting and perpetuating the terrible pain and suffering of the poor animals in this circus.
    The public, and organizations, need to BOYCOTT UniverSoul Circus so they will soon be put out of business, and so their suffering animals can go to good sanctuaries where they will be treated properly and have a better life.
