SOOOOOOOOO SIGNED!!!!! I fell in love with elephants when Mom and Dad took me to the Smithsonian Museum back in '74. They had plastic elephants in the gift shop and I remember being very picky about ''my elephant.'' If I'd known then what I know now...sigh. Thnx Cher.

We all should boycott circuses that still use animals, this is a very bad thing because many people will lose their jobs, but would also be the salvation of an unquantifiable number of breeds countless.
Anyway, there are circuses that not use animals and I see that still manage to produce a gain that can get them to stay in business.

signed. I wonder though how people overlook their own participation on abuse and murder of wonderful, innocent, gentle animals whenever they purchase meat and eat it. Where and how do they imagine this meat arrives in their mouths and guts? It is extreme hypocrisy to be outrages over a few species of animals and their suffering at the hands of he most ignorant people, while committing horrific acts themselves.
Mother Earth provides all manner of seeds, fruits, beans, vegetables, grains to us so that we can avoid cruelty and bad karma, intelligence and hands so that we can create bountiful meals and delicacies from these foods, and maintain a clean slate. We have eyes to see and ears to hear that the same blood and pain and need to live is shared by all of us sentient beings here.

“Animals are God's creatures, not human property, nor utilities, nor resources, nor commodities, but precious beings in God's sight…Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion are in a special position to understand the awfulness of innocent suffering. The Cross of Christ is God's absolute identification with the weak, the powerless, and the vulnerable, but most of all with unprotected, undefended, innocent suffering.”— Reverend Andrew Linzey

thanks for highlighting more injustices against animals. will boycott all animal shows. the authorities cannot reverse the regulations, we need it in place to ensure that animals are not abused. there's so much atrocities going on and the ones who suffer the most at circuses are usually the elephants. they never know the word freedom, or the green grasses and the streams. they are just caged and bullhooked, and electrocuted/prodded until they learn the tricks that they are forced to do.
