Hi.

Cole Brothers Circus is here in my hometown (Pensacola, Florida) and I am appauled.

Do you know of ANY contacts in Northwest FL that could help me rally a protest tomorrow?

My heart is breaking thinking about those poor animals. I want to do anything to help them and to educate this community. 

Thank you so much for your time and help.

Sincerely,

Julie Stuckey

Anyone thinking of going to Bobby Roberts Circus -  DON'T  they have a 55 year old elephant called Anne who has arthritis and although she no longer performs she is made to stand in a tent all day with a chain on her leg so she cannot move, swinging her trunk from side to side an obvious sign of distress, Bobby Roberts charges £6 to have people stand with her and have a picture taken.
Born free have offered to pay him to release her to a sanctuary where she can retire in peace and be with other elephants but he refuses and the misery on her face tells it all, 
Anne was taken from the wild in Sri Lanka when she was five and he has carted her around for 50 years and will not let her have the retirement she deserves after all she has brought to him, they also have performing dogs, horses and a camel.
Please boycott this circus or write a letter to the local paper and the council and inform shops who have the posters displayed of the suffering that is going on....
