AUGH! This poor animal is another reminder of why circuses need to be banned from using animals. There is no excuse for this kind of treatment!

I really hope this poor baby goes to a reputable sanctuary when better. The owners should be starved--monsters.

OMG!! This infuriates me!! I cannot understand or comprehend people who do such harm for their own personal/financial gain. Oh hey... let's starve this animal so people can hold him and love on him... no biggy if he dies, we can get another. Really??? Like WTF??

I'm happy to hear this little guy has been rescued. I hope others are as lucky.
If you're ever in a place where you feel injustice is being done, SPEAK UP!!

Thanks Scooby :") You deserve a snack ;)
