Despite learning about Carden International Circus' long history of animal abuse, some venues are still planning to host it. We need your help to show them that the public doesn't support circuses that use animals.
Carden International Circus is one of several similarly named companies—all run by Brett Carden; his father, George; and other members of their notorious family—that exploit elephants, camels, and other animals and currently hire outside exhibitors to supply tigers for its cruel acts. The family has a lengthy history of violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act, including failing to provide an elephant who had open wounds with proper veterinary care and intensively confining tigers—records show that they were confined to a transport cage for 23 hours a day.
Opposition to the use of animals for entertainment is stronger than ever before, as was shown by the closure of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which shut down after 146 years of cruelty and exploitation, citing the public's changing attitude toward animal circuses.
Please ask venues planning to host Carden International Circus to consider these facts carefully and at least require that any scheduled performances go forward without animals.
