Please join ARFF and help us protest the Cole Bros Circus
Each year the Cole Bros. Circus travels thousands of miles across the eastern U.S. with a menagerie of animals including elephants. Please help us educate circus goers during their Deland visit, just a short drive from Orlando. We have great access to the public making it a great opportunity to get information into the public hands. Last year we handed out HUNDREDS of flyers!!!!!
2 protest dates:
Saturday March 16th- Protest times 3:30 PM and 6:30 PM
Sunday March 17th - Protest times 12:30 and 3:30
* The protest will be along the sidewalk directly in front of the circus and the elephant rides. Look for the Red and Yellow tent at the corner of Flight Line and International Speedway Blvd directly across from 810 Flight Line Blvd
If you would like to car pool , email us at [masked]
Elephants in the circus commonly suffer from neglect, inadequate veterinary care and inhumane handling. The Cole Bros. Circus has a particularly poor reputation. In 2003, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) cited Cole Bros. after a handler struck an elephant with a broom handle. In 2000, USDA inspectors noted that two Cole Bros. elephants had bullhook scars. In the past 10 years, at least five elephants with the Cole Bros. Circus have died.
See you there!
