Don’t Host Circus That Lost License Due to Animal Welfare Violations

Target: Greg Lyback, Assistant General Manager of Yakima Valley SunDome

Goal: Stop the Yakima Valley SunDome from hosting cruel animal shows.

The Yakima Valley SunDome has plans to host the notoriously cruel Jordan World Circus despite its reputation of allegedly abusing and neglecting its animals. It is time to stop supporting this inhumane form of entertainment.

Animals trapped within the entertainment industry face a variety of hardships. Animals in the circus are typically subjected to gruesome training techniques which often involve pain and fear tactics. Jordan World Circus has lost its license to exhibit animals due to its overwhelming amount of Animal Welfare Act (AWA) violations. Therefore, the circus leases animals from exhibitors Brett Carden and Carson & Barnes Circus. Carson & Barnes Circus has over 100 violations against the AWA while Mr. Carden’s animals have been videotaped showing clear signs of distress — one elephant seemed to be injured as she kept her weight off one of her back legs.

Sign this petition and demand the Yakima Valley SunDome stop hosting shows that feature animal acts. These animals belong in the wild, not in loud, crowded arenas to put on shows for humans.


Dear Mr. Lyback,

The Yakima Valley SunDome plans on hosting Jordan World Circus, which has a questionable history in regards to animal welfare. Animals belong in the wild, not in crowded arenas putting on shows for humans. It is time to stop supporting this cruelty.

Animals held in circuses face a variety of mental and physical hardships. They are often put through a grueling training process which typically includes beating into submission and excessive periods of chaining. Jordan World Circus has made so many violations against the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) that it is no longer allowed to exhibit animals. Therefore, the circus leases animals from exhibitors Brett Carden and Carson & Barnes Circus. Carson & Barnes Circus has racked over 100 violations against the AWA while Mr. Carden’s animals have been recorded showing signs of excessive stress.

Please consider canceling your plans with Jordan World Circus and no longer allowing cruel animal acts in your venue. It is cruel to continue denying everything natural to these animals for a few moments of mere entertainment.

  1. What is wrong with people? Are they blind, uncaring or just plain stupid? What would make them go through with this? Don’t they do homework before allowing a sick and heinous entity such as this ‘circus’ perform for them? Why are we still allowing wild animals to ‘perform’ TRICKS in this supposedly civilized nation?

    Shut Down this Circus PERMANENTLY!!!!

  3. Why is Jordan World Circus still allowed to exhibit animals even though they lost their license to exhibit animals? They no longer own their own animals, but they are still exhibiting animals they rent. Makes no sense.
    It is deplorable that all the circuses named in this petition, though widely known for numerous animal cruelty offenses, are still allowed to operate at all. They should all immediately be shut down.
