Please put your signatures to the petition against the dolphin show that is to be held in Prague from April 24 to May 19, 2013! The dolphins are to be transported here from abroad, kept in a mobile "tent" with a pool in the city, and forced to perform.

PETICE V CESTINE (Petition in Czech)

TRANSLATION of the petition text

The Petition Against the Circus Show "Delfini v Praze" (Dolphins in Prague)

The petition for the cancellation of a circus "Delfini v Praze" (Dolphins in Prague) to be held from April 24th to May 19th, 2013

We, the undersigned, are demanding via this petition a ban on the circus show called "Delfini v Praze" that the company Ceskoslovenske cirkusy a varieté, a.s. (Czechoslovak Circuses and Variety Shows, Ltd.) is planning on holding on Rohanske nabrezi (the Rohanske Riverbank) in Praha 8 (Prague 8) from April 25th to May 19th, 2013.


1. The realization of the show is obviously in defiance with the Act No. 246/1996 Coll., for the protection of animals against abuse, and with the Directive No. 346/2006 Coll., Appendix No. 7 "The Delphinidae must not be bred and used for the training in mobile facilities designed for animal training". We are also convinced that, this temporary holding facility cannot allow for the fulfilment of all their needs, however compliant with the law it might formally be. Were the State Veterinary Administration to discover some deficiencies after the dolphins' arrival, these could hardly be remedied shortly enough in order to prevent the animals from suffering further.

2. The transport to the venue would be extremely stressful, if not directly life-threatening, to the animals.

3. The alleged "dolphin therapy", which is being offered by the organizers, has no scientific grounds and is, in our opinion, only an immoral way of profiting from hardship of disabled people.

Thank you.

Dolphins are calling for help

The event called "Delfini v Praze" (Dolphins in Prague) is being planned for the spring of 2013. This event may be understood as a show, a circus, a business undertaking, as an example of human thoughtlessness toward defenseless creatures who are taken captive in order to be trained to entertain people. In their natural environment dolphins can swim tens of kilometers a day, they dive, play, and form strong social bonds among themselves. After a show has ended, if not trained, they are left unnoticed in a small pool because at that point they make no money. The dolphin capture itself is part of a huge massacre of these intelligent, friendly, and trustful mammals. Most dolphins get killed in cold blood, whether it be for meat, "scientific research", or simply because they are considered to be "vermin" that "dare" eat "people's" oceanic fish. Insidious methods of dolphin hunt and murders can be seen in the documentary The Cove, which can be freely viewed on YouTube. What is unfathomable is that dolphins do not attack people even in the event of the greatest danger -- conversely, on many occasions they have saved a human life in case of shark attacks or imminent drowning.

By signing--or by not signing--this petition you will express your position on the future fate of these magnificent beings.

Only we, people, can be the advocates of dolphins.

Právě jsem to viděla ve zprávách a jala se hledat petici. Podepsáno. Díky!

Delfíni v Praze zní stejně blbě jako Modelky na Merkuru, a právě tak přirozeně.
