Animal Advocates of Arizona (AAAZ) Message Board › ALERT: Urge Lowe's Foods to End Partnership W/Ringling Circus!
We recently learned that North Carolina–based Lowe's Foods Stores is offering discounted Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus tickets to its customers. By promoting the circus in this way, Lowe's Food Stores is supporting an industry that causes immense suffering to animals.
Ringling has a lengthy history of animal abuse and neglect (click here for Ringling's violations). Trainers beat elephants with sharp metal-tipped bullhooks and keep these highly intelligent, social animals in shackles for the majority of their lives. Baby elephants are tied with rope, prematurely ripped away from their mothers, and forced to perform cruel and confusing tricks.
Please use this form to send a message to Lowe's Foods Vice President of Marketing & Merchandising Barbara Saulpaugh urging her to stop promoting Ringling Bros. by offering discounted tickets to customers. Ask that Lowe's Foods never again partner with Ringling or any other circus that uses animals.
Please click here to forward this message to friends, family members and co-workers. Thank you for everything that you do to help animals.
For all animals,
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
