**RINGLING CIRCUS PROTEST*WEDNESDAY*OP­ENING NIGHT*6PM**

  • "Arrive early to find a place to park and walk to demo. Bring quarters for the meters."

    It's that time of year! The circus is coming to Tampa once again. We plan to be speak up for the animals, who suffer from the constant travel, abusive training and social isolation. In the circus virtually all of animal's natural behaviors are thwarted.


    Please come out and help us educate and be the voice for these animals. The circus has long been thought of as an event to delight and entertain. But for Circus animals who spend up to 50 weeks per year in "transport" cages or railroad boxcars, the circus is no fun at all. The Demonstrations will occur at the intersection of Channelside Dr & S. Morgan St. Each demo will be one and a half hour. We will try to get patrons going in as well as leaving the circus this year. We welcome you for any time you can give. The animals need our voice.

  • Animals in circuses live miserable lives of deprivation, confinement and abuse. Ringling's animal-care history is riddled with USDA violations and penalties. At least twenty-five Ringling elephants, including four babies, have died since 1992! More info: http://www.animalrightsflorida.org/Ringling

    Lots of great, dedicated, compassionate people showed up in support of the elephants & other wild animals that suffer in circuses every day. Keep up the great work. Someday we won't have to do this anymore.
