NO ANIMALS IN THE CIRCUS
2 years ago
  • Target: Prime Minister Stephen Harper
  • Sponsored by: Jenna Miles

I am creating this petition today to ask you all to help me end this horror.
Animals in the circus are tortured both physically and pschologically their whole lives. Some are taken from the wild, forcibly separated from their family. Others are bred specifically for the purpose of using the babies in the circus. The mothers are often bred too young, and live in horrible conditions, very much like a puppy mill. Many babies are taken from their mothers young, to begin their `training.`

Please sign even if you are not Canadian.  PM Harper needs to hear from all!
