Target: Jimmy Morales, President of Guatemala
Goal: Praise Guatemala for banning animals in circuses.
Recently, the country of Guatemala made the groundbreaking decision to ban all animals in circuses. Now countless elephants, tigers, lions and other animals will no longer be subjected to cruel beatings, neglect and excessive chaining.
Animals used in circuses are typically held in small cages when they are not being forced to perform in loud, crowded arenas. The training process with circus animals typically includes regular beatings, withholding food, and long periods of chaining until the animal is completely submissive. Life in the circus denies everything that is natural to these animals.
Sign this petition and praise Guatemala for banning animals in the circus. No animal should suffer for human entertainment.
Dear President Morales,
Recently, Guatemala made the compassionate choice to ban all animals in circuses. This is great news for the countless animals imprisoned in the cruel world of circus entertainment.
As you are aware, animals trapped in circuses face physical and mental hardships daily. They are often confined in small cages, tightly tied up for extended periods of time, beaten, neglected, and even starved. When they are not confined in their small enclosures, they are forced into crowded, loud arenas to perform ridiculous tricks. It is a terrifying and incredibly stressful situation for these animals.
Thankfully, the animals in Guatemala will no longer have to fear circus life. Thank you for making this change and being a voice for animals. I can only hope more countries follow in your footsteps.
