Ban Cruel Big Cat Show

Target: John Caracciolo, President and CEO of JVC Broadcasting

Goal: Ban Lion & Tiger Show from performing.

Despite a citation from the USDA for violating the Animal Welfare Act, the Lion & Tiger Show, a big cat exhibit, will be hosted at the Pennysaver Amphitheater, which is owned and operated by JVC Broadcasting. The show’s exhibitor, Georgina Donoho, was cited for keeping her big cats in cages so small they could barely turn around. These animals spend most of their lives in these small cages as they are carted around the nation for shows.

Big cats face a variety of mental and physical hardships in captivity. Captivity often leads to higher levels of stress, shorter life spans, and disease. Lions and tigers belong in the wild, not in overcrowded arenas. Sign this petition and demand the Pennysaver Amphitheater ban this cruel show.


Dear Mr. Caracciolo,

The Pennysaver Amphitheater is currently hosting the Brookhaven Fair and all its acts. Unfortunately, one of the acts is the Lion & Tiger Show, which exploits animals for profit. These animals belong in the wild, roaming freely, not trapped in cages and overcrowded arenas.

The exhibitor for Lion & Tiger Show, Georgina Donoho, has been cited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for violating the Animal Welfare Act by keeping her big cats in cages so small they could barely turn around. When the cats are not performing, they are typically kept in their cages and being carted around from show to show. Captivity is extremely detrimental to big cats and often leads to a variety of mental and physical issues, as well as shorter life spans.

Please consider banning Lion & Tiger Show from your amphitheater. These animals should not suffer for human entertainment.

  1. I’m sure this will fall on the deaf ears of the wicked, it always does.

  2. Kathryn Irby says:

    NO Animal is meant to be placed on EXHIBITION!!! NO Animal is meant to be a PERFORMER, INCLUDING BIG CATS!!! CANCEL THIS RIDICULOUS BIG CAT SHOW–NOW!!!

  3. The Lion and Tiger Show should have been shut down. It is known by authorities that they are abusive – why don’t they shut them down??
    And JVC Broadcasting – if they host this show – will be COMPLICIT in the horrendous cruelty toward innocent wild cats.
    All such shows should be shut down permanently. Animal cruelty in all it’s forms must be stopped.

    JVC seems to be involved with some other abuses too, the banana derby I believe is also tarred with JVC’S money making hands. Boycott all products produced might have some impact if any, start with the pocket!!!!!

  5. What is with this jerk? The monkeys, the big cats, what else??
