AN IMPORTANT MESSASGE FROM TIPPI
June 16, 2015
The “Circus,” which
emanates joy, thrills, and amazing acts performed by wild animals to
thrill the unassuming public is one of the culprits of breeding the
exotic animals to entice the public to “come to the ‘Circus’ to see
elephants doing amazing stunts, the big cats, lions and tigers,
jumping through enflamed hoops” and other antics they would never do
in the wild.
The “Circus” has been the biggest clog in the wheel
of the passage of the “Federal Bill to Ban the Breeding of the
Exotic Feline for Personal Possession” and it is powerful!
been sold a bill of goods by “Circus” PR departments. They tell us
“The animals are so happy in the ‘Circus’, we take pride in their
care.” These are out and out lies!!!!
Have you ever seen an
elephant in the wild sit up, stand on her/his head, do a dance
routine? Never! It is mandated by “Circus” trainers who beat the
animals with electric prods, and bull hooks, yelling foul language
at the animals. They are in training to teach the animals to “Do as
I...@#%&…tell you to do!” They are chained, beaten, demeaned and
broken in spirit to do these insulting acts. Travel in trains and
trucks with no air conditioning results in many deaths and
illnesses. They will, and do retaliate, becoming extremely
uncontrollable and violent!
All of the “Circuses,” every one of
them, have been documented and proven to treat the wild animals with
extreme brutal abuse. They have access to large breeding facilities,
which supply big cats to the circus and shows in the U.S. and the
world over. The animals are nothing but a commodity to gain monetary
wealth. Is this what we want our children to learn about wild
As we look at all of the above treatment of Wild Animals
in circuses and shows in the U.S., how do we look at the other way?
I can’t! I won’t! It is time for all of us who care about the
beings on our planet and stop the atrocities perpetuated upon these
magnificent wild animals. Let this be the end of over one hundred
years of cruelty to these magnificent, highly intelligent animals
who have been brutalized by humans who weren’t men enough to see
them as thinking feeling beings!
The legislation to prevent these
atrocities is imperative. Will anyone in our government stand beside
me and the growing number of people demanding to stop Wild Animals
from being abused in the circus? What kind of people are we to allow
these atrocities!!!!! Do not be swayed by the slick talk of the
circus rhetoric, with their hugely funded PR campaigns.
Now is the
time to right this unconscionable wrong!!!
