today's action Tell Disney: Use the New Dumbo Movie to Stop the Horrible Treatment of Circus Animals

The teaser for Tim Burton's remake of Disney's "Dumbo" hit the internet this week and has already gone viral. Judging by the reactions in the Twitter-verse, people can't wait to see it. It's got a star-studded cast and the graphics look amazing. But the film makes the circus look glamorous, almost magical. Something that is not the case for the thousands of elephants and other animals living in cages behind the big top.

Care2 hopes that the Dumbo remake won't lead to a resurgence in popularity of the antiquated institution of circuses. Disney has a responsibility to drive awareness around the abuse of elephants in circuses. That's why we are asking Disney to donate a portion of the proceeds from the film to the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.

The debut of this film is a great opportunity to educate the public about the abuses in the animal entertainment industry. Please sign the petition and let's make it happen.
