Join ARFF to protest the Ringling Bros. Circus
RinglingLife in the circus is inherently cruel for animals, who suffer from constant travel, abusive training, and social isolation. In the circus, virtually all of animal’s natural behaviors are thwarted.

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus has a long history of abusive treatment of elephants and other animals. In November 2011, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus agreed to pay a $270,000 fine to the USDA to settle allegations that it violated animal welfare laws in its handling of elephants, tigers and other animals. The fine was the largest ever against a circus! The alleged violations include elephants forced to perform when they were sick. (Learn more here).

    Unfortunately I work 48 hrs srtaight in Boca, Mondays and Tuesdays, and 24 hrs Thursdays, and 10 hrs on Friday, so I don't have a lot of time. I have a fb event and would love for everyone to friend me (even just for this) and I can send them an invite and they can invite their friends. Laurie Wila

    Is this group still active? I intend to protest Christmas day at 3pm and 7pm, actually earlier since those are the actual starting times.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
