Ringling Brothers Circus is not welcome in Rochester, NY

Because of the long and sordid history of the Ringling Brothers torturing animals and hiring criminals, we do not believe that the circus should be considered a \"fun-filled\" family entertainment event. We do not want them to return in the future. This petition will be sent to the Blue Cross Arena by May 14, 2006.


This petition is sponsored by the Animal Advocacy Group at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY.

    2 years ago Comments: Animals SHOULD NOT be used in a circus. This practice is barbaric+I cannot believe Ringling STILL uses animals. (I will try to end this practice until my dying day.) Ringling Bros--eliminate the animals in your circus+you'd have a lot more people attending!
