California: Bears, Big Cats, and Elephants Used in Circuses Need Your Help!

UN LAB Middleware Label: Title Ends

 

Bears, elephants, tigers, and other wild and exotic animals don't ride bicycles, walk on their front legs, jump through hoops of fire, or give rides because they want to—they do it because they're afraid of the consequences that they'll face if they don't. But California is considering a bill that would end this abuse in the state, and we need your help as a resident to get it passed right away.

These animals are dragged from city to city in cages, chains, or cramped trailers and forced to perform demeaning, confusing, and often painful trucks under the threat of bullhooks—sharp steel-tipped rods that resemble fireplace pokers—whips, and other weapons.

Both New Jersey and Hawaii have already banned the use of all wild animals in traveling acts. Please tell the members of the state Senate Committee on Natural Resources and Water before its April 9 hearing that as a California voter, you support Senate Bill 313—California's Circus Cruelty Prevention Act.
