Urge the USDA to seize an aging, injured elephant named, "Sarah," from the Ringling Bros. Circus immediately and move her to an elephant sanctuary where she can receive long-needed treatment for her neglected medical ailments.

I can't stand the circus industry! Poor animals like Sarah taken from the wild to preform demeanding acts for a pathetic public yet to be educated. I pray for you dear Sarah. I pray that you will know freedom in your twlight years, that your aching body & heart will be free, that you go too a good elephant sancutary lwhere you are among your own & live out the rest of your life surrounded by LOVE. I love you my darling xxx.

Signed Cal.People who patronise circuses are bigger clowns than the performers.

Signed, We do not need circuses - they are cruel and contribute nothing to animal welfare - just greedy money spinners. Hate them. Thanks Cal.

I have never liked circuses at all. I was to one and one only when I was young and I was not impressed. In fact I found it rather boring. I like them even less now that I know how they treat animals.

Bring die doodstraf terug, gee hierdie diere ook die reg om te kan besluit. Hulle het n reg om te lewe, raak ontslae van die gemors wat besig is om al ons diere uitteroei, hou op om die Chinese, Japenese noem hulle wat jy wil te ondersteun. Hulle is barbaars gee die doodstraf aan hulle, die gemors verdien nie om te lewe nie.

Disgraceful animal cruelty! THe USDA should not need petitioned to do the right thing for Sarah.Remove her immediately, while you sit around doing nothing the situation for Sarah gets worse! End her suffering now. How would you like to be treated in this way...CLOSE CIRCUSES PERMANTELY. Thanks, Cal.

At circuses animals are exploited without receiving due care and love that they deserve. Boycott circuses!!! Shame on authorities who only watch animal abuse without taking a firm stand against it and/or taking punitive measures against the abusers! Animal protection laws needs improving, as does their enforcement!

No animals in circusses. If humans want to live like this, it's their own decision. But animals can't decide for themselves. And in a circus they can't be treated appropriately to the species.

The original owners of circuses,educated & performed with their animals,treated them as family & were visibly devastated when anything happened to them.Now this LOVE of the performing animal seems to have disappeared from circuses,& therefore they should be disbanded!
