Letter: Ringling Brothers Circus closing

  • Comments

The people have spoken on behalf of the animals and the curtain is finally falling on the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus. There is a growing understanding about animals as sentient beings and that animal cruelty in the name of entertainment is still animal cruelty. Thank you to all the people who signed petitions and who became the voices of the beautiful animals who suffered at the hands of the trainers. Never underestimate the power of the love and respect for animals that many of us have.
