Can't make opening night? Join us over the weekend to hit two shows in one! Let's educate Colorado Springs circus go-ers about cruelty under the big top. We'll be passing out kid-friendly coloring books and literature while offering a pay-per-view. All materials and signs will be provided. Just show up with an unstoppable attitude!
Why should you speak up?
Ringling Bros and other animal based circuses use cruel devices called bullhooks to beat their animals into submission so they will perform the tricks you see in the circus. These tricks are unnatural for these animals and can lead to injury, crippling them for the remainder of their life. Elephants in Ringling's possession are chained inside filthy, poorly ventilated boxcars for an average of more than 26 straight hours—and often 60 to 70 hours at a time—when the circus travels.
