i had noticed many friends names on this one.
There's no place for a petition to keep elephants enslaved, on Care2, wish it would be removed!

Thanx for posting Julie.

Unfortunately i signed+thought it was removed coz i couldn't find it earlier. Okay so i'll try Eric...odd you'd think it would've already been removed by now since Eric is aware of it. Thx Julie

Unfortunately, most of the signatures are not there by mistake
Just read all those comments ... among other, they name us: " ... Animal Rights Zealots push circus elephants and other animals out of our lives ..." also saying: " ... Please reconsider giving in to extremists. America is slowly waking up - we WILL fight for you ..." also: " ... Everything good is disappearing in this country. Who in hell left the wackos in charge? If the elephants go, then the circus will fold." also: "... Please allow our children, grandchildren and future generations to enjoy these beautiful animals and experience a grand tradition of true circuses" ...

This is insanity!

Thanks for the heads-up! One need but note who created the petition to see it is deceptive. Those who signed it by mistake - hey, it was an honest boo-boo, and even the most intelligent and aware people make them. I have signed petitions and then realized that I shouldn't have.

A lot of the signers may be Ringling Bros. employees.

I have read some of the comments and it is so disappointing that so many people are uneducated regarding the health and well-being of wild animal in circus's. These people have no idea how these magnificent animals are 'broken' to make them do all these cruel tricks which they find so entertaining.

As for the ones who think it is their 'right' for their children to be able to see these beautiful creature, they are just selfish, ignorant people, why should an elephant suffer for 50 years just so that their little brat can be entertained for an hour. Those sorts of people disgust me.

Sad to see there are so many ignorant people out there who can't seem to break with this wretched "tradition". Still, I too was once so blissfully ignorant....when I was 5 years the 1970s....

Thanks for the warning. Did not sign.

NOT SIGNED. NOT supporting the misery, suffering, cruelty of enslaving intelligent, sentient beings from their families, natural and wild surroundings, having to murder their mothers in order to steal the babies away, abusing these babies and others with bull hooks, improper diets, standing endlessly on surfaces that damage them, not having proper medical care and forced to live in climates that they are not suited to, essentially taking their very lives to make them "perform" for the entertainment of others who don't care one thing about them after they have been amused by them. Clearly many of the signers either misunderstood what this petition was really about, or simply have no idea of what our magnificent elephants endure and why circuses, zoos are so awful for them. Disgusted and NOT SIGNED!

No signature from me, I read it and couldn't believe at first it was a petition. Unfortunately some people just sign for the 50 points. You can remove your signature by clicking on the link at the bottom of the thank you e-mail from care2 that comes in after you sign. So anyone wishing to remove their monogram from the petition that's how you do it. They have closed it now declaring victory...Some victory! Thank you for all the extra warnings everyone so kindly sent to give warning. I had worked it out not to sign but it's good that so many alerted each other. . .Now we have to wait and see what the Ringling Bros Circus does and if they keep their word and retire all their elephants to a sanctuary. Work is not over the new elephant apparently is going to be the camels. God forbid. . .Thank you for posting. . .

What is ultimately a Circus or a Zoo? Both are a lifelong and horrific prison where animals schizoid and disturbed then have to vegetate. And why? For a few brainless idiots have fun to see animals behind bars. And a second part of moneygrubbing and brainless idiots (the Circus and Zoo owner) earned on the hump of the poor animals very much money. Closes and boycott all Circus and Zoos, freed the animals and the problem is perhaps then finally solved! ATTENTION: Demonstrably many zoo animals sick very often, they die much earlier or they are on other abnormal behavior patterns, an example is the running back and forth from big predator cats in their way too small cages, or even elephants stand there and wiggle his head a long time back and forth. The list of mental health problems of animals in captivity can be extended. The cheap excuses the zoo operator is usually the same: If there were no Zoos or Circus, countless species would now be extinct. My conclusion: Ok, they may even be right, that would be extinct many animals, but I personally would prefer death than my life, locked up behind bars!
