Don’t Send Ringling Bros.’ Tigers to Yet Another Cruel Circus

Target: Kenneth Feld, Owner of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus

Goal: Stop Ringling Bros. from selling their tigers to German circus.

The Ringling Bros. circus, in the wake of their closing, is selling their tigers to a German circus rather than letting them retire peacefully. For years, animal activists have lobbied to shut down the circus due to reports of animal cruelty, including but not limited to whipping the tigers and forcing them to jump through hoops of fire. It seemed the animals would finally be released from their torment, but that is not to be the case according to the circus’s plans.

We must not let this happen. These tigers have already been through enough pain and suffering, and after so many years they deserve a peaceful retirement to a legitimate animal sanctuary. It is needlessly cruel to sell them to another establishment that will force them to perform dangerous tricks and use harsh training methods.

Tigers are already in danger as a species due to poaching and habitat loss, but those forced to perform in circuses are especially in need of our help. Sign this petition to demand Ringling Bros. cancel their sale and allow the tigers to live the rest of their days in a sanctuary.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Feld,

Do not sell your tigers to another circus. Not only is the sale of wildlife cruel and unethical, but your tigers deserve to live out the rest of their days peacefully after spending years undergoing harsh training methods and performing dangerous tricks to please audiences. It is wrong to force them into another circus that will only put them through the same hardship and suffering.

Please cancel the sale and place your tigers in a proper animal sanctuary, where they can rest and be given the proper care they deserve. They have worked themselves to exhaustion for too long; do not force them to go through yet another round of harsh training and dangerous tricks in unfamiliar territory.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Don’t you think you have done enough injustice to the wild animals in your circus all these years. Don’t you think these animals deserve a retiremnt after living under the torture your trainers put them through. Why would you sell them to even more cruelty. You are a dispicable person! You are an animal abuser!
    Shame on you and your lack of compassion for living things.

    Do the right thing and give these tigers the life they have deserved from day one. Allegedly there have been acts of abuse, cruelty and training methods which have been questionable within Ringling Brothers. These magnificent tigers need to be able to live what is left of their lives in a sanctuary full of kindness, tranquility and comfort.
    This is an opportunity for Ringling Brothers to redeem themselves and make things right for these tigers.
